Overview

Traversing the south face of Mount Pisgah between Fall River Road and Bald Mountain Lane, Hamlin Gulch 4-wheel drive road provides an essential connection between the area above Idaho Springs and the county roads above Central City. It is also an important alternate entrance/exit into/out of the extensive network of 4x4 trails around Yankee Hill. Two rocky, off-camber obstacles add excitement to the journey, and magnificent views of Mount Evans to the south and Red Elephant Hill to the west can be seen when there are openings in the trees.
