Herman Gulch's less-trafficked cousin, this trail can be carpeted in wildflowers during peak season.

Unless seasonal restrictions are in effect, campfires must be attended at all times and cold to the touch with the bare hand before being abandoned. Collection of dead and down wood is allowed; do not break branches from standing trees for firewood.

Description

Beginning in the trees, this trail climbs above treeline during the first mile. You pass through an area where timber was harvested along the Watrous Gulch Creek during the mid 19th century at the height of the mining days.

Once above treeline, wildflowers surround the ground like a quilt.
