Trail Information

Highlights

Mammoth Gulch provides access to or from the northern terminus of the Kingston Peak trail or can be combined with Elk Park Road to make a back way into Apex and the trails around Dakota Hill and Oregon Hill. This trail features beautiful views of the James Peak Wilderness and the area around Rollins Pass to the west and north. There is also interesting history to be seen as you pass through the ghost town of Tolland on the way to the trailhead. Mammoth Gulch can be a leisurely, scenic drive or a connection to further adventure.

The top of Mammoth is drifted over as of Nov 8 2022. Not terribly bad and would be easy to bash through with a couple high clearance vehicles but not something you'd want to try on your own.

Really nice trail, a lot rockier than the guide pictures show, but nothing a vehicle with good clearance shouldn't be able to handle. Ran the trail to connect with Elk Park, awesome views!

Drove the trail from North to South. Easy trail with some really good views on the way up. A good connector trail to some other really good trails (e.g. Kingston Peak).

Easy trail. Scenic view on top. Ran it from Elk Creek to Tolland. Scenic view of several lakes and the yellow school house on the lower end. We used it as a short cut over to Rollins Pass East.
