Trail Information

Highlights

This out-and-back spur off of Mammoth Gulch, west of Rollinsville, features several nice, large campsites as it makes its way through the thick, picturesque pine forest. The area is quite popular, though, and the sites fill up quickly. As you get higher up the trail, there are a few areas where the forest opens up and you can enjoy outstanding views of the gulch below as well as the surrounding mountains. This trail is a nice little diversion off the main Mammoth Gulch trail or a pleasant destination for a weekend camping excursion

Based on reports from nearby trails, the trail is probably very difficult or impassible due to snow

Per the National Forest Service: FORT COLLINS, Colo (Nov. 9, 2020) – More forest closures are being lifted across the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests as all Stage 3 restrictions are rescinded beginning at 6 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 10. Closures will remain in place around areas that experienced wildfire in Grand, Boulder and Larimer counties. These fire areas present a public safety threat as burned trees can fall unexpectedly, hot spots are still burning, and new hazards can be hidden under snow.

Ran into some snow towards the end. It was a bit wet but some AWD Subaru made it.
