Use the red route to get into Willow Basin. Most everyone else should use the red route back to Maroon Lake as well but if you have some adventure in you carefully studdy this Yellow route and use it. It's 2,500-ft in less than a mile. It's incredibly steep but it goes and mostly on tundra. It's not as simple as just cruising the steep tundra. There are places where you will need to use good routefinding to avoid heinous obstacles like willows, dense aspen tree siblings, talus and steep dirt. It takes about 1.5 hours to hike from Willow Lake to Maroon Lake using this route.
