Description

Added by Grace Ditzenberger

Short hike to a beautiful, hidden swimming hole.

Drive north of Crested Butte to Schofield Pass until you come to the sticker-covered sign. Unless you have an ATV, park the car and descend along the infamous and deadly Schofield Pass Road. Follow this road past the first waterfall, which is about 500 feet from the initial sign. You will continue descending until you reach a plateau at the bottom of the valley with the swimming hole to your right. 

Enjoy and cool off in the clear blue waters of Devil's Punchbowl!
