Brief Directions

Take Maroon Creek Road off Colorado Highway 82, after you enter into White River National Forest you will see many of the avalanche chutes on the north facing mountains off to your left as you drive up toward the Maroon Bells.

Description

Along Maroon Creek there are numerous avalanche chutes were avalanches from years ago have rumbled down the steep slopes toward the Maroon Creek overcoming everything in their path. Much wider at the bottom than the top, they widen much like the opening of a hand fan. This image shows new growth aspens to the left in the area cleared by this overwhelming force of nature while to the right those aspens and evergreens that survived live on.
