Description

Despite primarily being a downhill mountain bike trail, Gutz is technically open to hiking. It runs from the top of Sun Up all the way to the Rainbow Trail. If you do choose to hike it, remain highly aware of mountain bikers that could be flying downhill around blind corners at any moment.

If you're looking for a better hike up to the Rainbow Trail, consider hiking Double Rainbow Trail to Pot-o-Gold instead, or the Columbine Trail.
