Coulson Gulch (A+)

LMC Calendar


Great out and back day hike near Lyons. Starts with a steep downhill and continues mostly downward through forest and along a creek bed with occasional meadows. Trails are a mix of open and tree cover with abundant wildflowers. About 1.8 miles into the trail lies an old abandoned cabin. Then we trek down the trail with several stream crossings, an eroded section and tricky navigation. At the end is a spectacular cascade of water flowing at the bend in the St. Vrain Creek. The return will be an upward trek all the way back to the Trailhead. Hike is rated A+ with 6 miles RT and 978' elevation gain and maximum elevation of 7,400'. To sign up contact Tom Bruch
