Description

On the way down spring gulch you'll see a trail to the left. Climb up this for almost 2000 feet then either hike to the peak, or turn around and come back the way you came. Mostly smooth, the top half with the switchbacks is less steep. Only a few ruggedl sections, with some very steep spots. Watch for other hikers and horses coming up, as well as mountain bikers coming down. Continue down Spring Gulch for over 3000 feet of nonstop descending!
