My Trip Advisor ratings tend to focus only on really disappointing adventures or superb adventures. I've written reviews about a number of hiking and scenery venues around Summit County. After nine years as part time residents, we had not tried the McCullough Gulch trail. The...More

This is fairly steep, but worth the trip. Good shoes and a hiking stick recommended. In June, in rained, snowed, and was hot and sunny. Wear layers! The waterfall is beautiful, but so is the rest of the hike. The rocky trail is very slippery....More

We attempted this hike with a baby and toddler and made it about halfway up. The scenery is beautiful throughout the hike, but it gets progressively rockier and steeper which is why we turned back. The first part of the hike was very wet, so...More

As previous reviewers state, get there early. The place fills up rather quickly. This is by no stretch an difficult hike but is uphill most of the way. Coupled with the high elevation, if you are a low lander, prepare to be winded. Oh, and...More

This two hour plus hike has some rough spots and it is mostly uphill. But the views of a waterfall and the end point by a tarn make this one of the most popular summer wildflower hikes.

We had a great time on this hike, the views were beautiful and the scenery was very nice. We saw a lot of wild life. Definitely would do it again!

The views from this trail were spectacular. The people I met along the trail were friendly and encouraged me to continue to the top when I was about tog give up. About 4 miles south of town. The roads were narrow and ice covered.

It is probably closed in March. When we were there last year the trail didn’t open until June.
