Oh-Be-Joyful Pass #835

  

The Oh-Be-Joyful Pass Trail #835 begins at an intersection with the Silver Basin Trail #834 and ends at an intersection with the Daisy Pass Trail #404 on the Gunnison Ranger District about 0.5 miles past Oh-Be-Joyful Pass.  Follow the Daisy Pass Trail south for about 1 mile to an intersection with the Oh-Be-Joyful Trail #836 which continues on to the Oh-Be-Joyful Trailhead. Due to the abundance of moisture and fertile basins along this trail in the spring and early summer, wildflowers are abundant. Look for our State flower the Columbine; other species include Indian Paintbrush and Avalanche Lilies.
