Day Hike - Red Pass/Commonwealth Basin

Great hike, great color all the way up. No snow.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • Trail in great shape.

We took the Kendall Katwalk trail up to the commonwealth trail turn off. We went up to Red Pass, beautiful color towards the top. Trail is a series of steep switchbacks for the last 1 1/2 miles up. Great views. On the way down we decided to take and to stay on the commonwealth basin trail. Trail was in great shape for not being used that often, a nice waterfall halfway down about 30 feet off the trail, worth a look. Taking this trail back shaved about 40 minutes off the hike down.
