“Ridge running at its finest!”— Chris Wandervans
Sunny Gulch climbs from the Rough Creek Trail junction to the pass with Boundary Creek and then becomes much steeper as you head towards the peak. Once atop the high point of the trail you'll take in views of many alpine lakes.
From the top of the trail you descend steeply to the junction with Big Casino Trail and then continues on to Garland Creek and another set of lakes. The trail can taken in either direction to make a number of loops. The biggest challenge is going to be near the high point of the trail.
