Highlights

Highlight: Stevens Gulch Road
The opportunity to "bag" two, class-1 14ers on the same day doesn't come around very often. Grays and Torreys Peak are the two highest points on the Continental Divide and offer you this rare opportunity. Located in Arapahoe National Forest, Stevens Gulch is the only road to access the upper Grays trailhead that cuts 3 miles off of your peak bagging hike.

Rating:
This is the only road to access the Gray Trailhead. It is rough and you will see all kinds of vehicles on it with many drivers in over there head. People don't appear to know any trail etiquette so be prepared for that. Even with all the traffic it sees, the drive was nice with very pretty views at the end.

Hi, I'm Ryan! I am a Colorado native and I've been wheeling since I was 16 years old. I grew up with a relentless passion for all things Jeep and off road related, and that passion has never died out. I am a member of the Mile-Hi Jeep Club, Patrol 16 Sasquatch Jeepers and currently own an '06 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited (LJ) nicknamed "Minion". I am a huge supporter of Stay the Trail and Tread Lightly, and have participated and even been in charge of many trail restoration projects. I have been a trail leader several times for events such as All-4-Fun, ColoradoFest, Set Them Free, 14er Fest, and other. I am also the creator of the Unlimited LJ Adventure. My rig is built for extreme offroading, but I love to get my tires dirty on any kind of trail whether it's rock crawling or just scenic high Alpine drives. I've wheeled all over the country including Colorado, Utah, Kansas, the Carolinas, AZ, and California. I love a great adventure, and love even more to share those adventures with others. If you see the "minion" out on the trail, make sure to stop and say hello.
