Coliseum Trail is a top-rated route in the region, offering stunning views. It begins at the Coliseum Staging Area parking lot, ascending shortly after crossing a creek. Turn left at the Ranger Station Trail junction for a switchback ascent. Pass rock bands with minimal scrambling to reach the false summit. Enjoy views of the connecting ridge between Coliseum’s two peaks.
Continue to traverse a scree field along the ridge, with mountain views on the left and expansive plains on the right. The trail leads to the final ascent to the crown, rewarding you with breathtaking 360-degree panoramas. Descend using the same route, avoiding shortcuts to prevent erosion and trail damage.
