Overview

Hackett Gulch is a well-known trail in the Wildcat Canyon area near Divide, CO, and the most popular of "The Gulch Trails." The trail is notable for its impressive scenery and challenging obstacles. While the Hayman Fire of 2002 stripped much of the tree cover, it provides a unique view of the Colorado Mountains, adding to the trail's epic feel. The dense collection of rocky obstacles, including a climb with features reminiscent of Moab's slickrock climbing, draws scores of Wheelers from all over the Front Range in search of a challenge. While the obstacles make this a local rite of passage, the scenery offers an adventure for everyone, making Hackett Gulch an excellent trail for all levels of off-roaders.
