Trail Information

Highlights

Traversing the south face of Mt. Pisgah between Fall River Road and Bald Mountain Lane, Hamlin Gulch 4-wheel drive road provides an important 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 Mt. Evans to the south and Red Elephant Hill to the west can be seen when there are openings in the trees.

I’m in a 17 Taco 37’s the off camber obstacle definitely has a pucker factor but not technical.

Ran it backwards. Waypoint 3 is, as others have said, narrow. Glad we met nobody coming up.

Open all the way, never much traffic on this short trail. Waypoint 3 is narrow as mentioned but taking your time and a spotter would help.

The trail is completely open. The large tree that was causing just past waypoint three has been cleared.

Fun trail. WP 3 and 6 were challenging, but nothing too crazy. I took it slow and checked my line a few times. Trail is still dry!
