The boundary of the Weminuche Wilderness is 2.7 miles up the trail, with fantastic fishing, and the turnoff to Emerald Lake is at mile 6.3 (Trail #528). The trail continues to ascend, sometimes gradually and sometimes moderately. This trail is a point-to-point and can be combined with a variety of other trails in the Vallecito, Colorado area.
