Description

Charcoal Gulch Trail begins off the Buena Vista Trail #262, where it starts climbing up into Charcoal Gulch. The ascent starts off pretty gently, but has several steeper rutted sections. After one last steeper climb, the trail ends at a forest service road. Turn around and enjoy the hike down. This trail is lightly used and can be covered in pine cones early in the season and short sections may be rutted.

Up and back again. No water to filter so bring plenty and start earlier to avoid heat. — 11h 29m
