The trailhead for Upper Johns Gulch is somewhat tucked away, which explains why the trail is not driven more often. Like many of the trails in the area, Upper Johns Gulch has been changed by heavy rainfall. There are two washouts that may be difficult for a lower-clearance vehicle. A stock 4WD will have no issues with this trail.

There is a large campsite about two-thirds of the way down the trail with fantastic views of Pikes Peak. The campsite is relatively flat, large enough for multiple rigs, and has an established fire ring.

The trail ends short of the MVUM map due to a large amount of downed trees. There is space to turn around and head back the way you came.
