This trail is named for the friendly Ute war chief Ma-ver-e-so who camped many summers on the head of the canyon. Mavreeso trail is used by hikers, horseback and trail bikers, as well as hunters to access the popular Nipple Mountain area. Initially you pass through an aspen forest. Drawing closer to the grassy meadows brings you into oakbrush territory.
