The trail along Glacier Peak and down # 10 Hill is a difficult way to
connect Georgia Pass the Swan River Loop. Though the trail is near
the much busier trails along the Swan River in the Breckenridge and
Keystone areas this trail itself is less used and you will likely see
any other people. I rate this trail as difficult and in my opinion
could only be driven down hill from Georgia Pass.

The was supposed to be a geocache here but we could not find it.
Another view towards Breckenridge with lake Dillion in
the distance. The Breckenridge area is very popular with dirt
This trail down from Glacier Peak was one of the ones
that didn't look that steep until you started down it, then it was too
late. This Jeep was not too difficult just very steep.
Jeep road heading to Number 10 Hill had beautiful views above the tree
line of the Colorado Rocky Mountains.
Number 10 Hill and let me tell you it is very difficult, and goes for a
really long ways. It is basically 1 way down for dirt bikes, Jeeps
and Atvs could make it up with a wench but it would take all day.
Guide to Colorado backroad and 4x4 trails
showed it as this area as moderate on one page and difficult on another,
don't make the same mistake we did, if you are not prepared for
difficult terrain stay away from this trail.

trail around the Swan River was blocked during the 1st week of July and
we were forced to turn around but not before enjoying the views.
Cabin in good shape along the Jeep Road at Swandyke. The
population of this town was once 500 people but little remains today.
