Details

This is a long loop trail that encircles Wildcat Gulch near St Elmo. Do not be fooled as this is a very long hike and a huge undertaking. Do not expect this day to be easy. We will hike from the parking lot just outside St Elmo up Hancock Road past the townsites of Romley and Hancock and several mining history sites. We will then hike the historic Alpine Tunnel Trail past Jake and Elwoods Spring and turn north on Tunnel Lake Trail to Tincup Pass Road. We will then hike down the Tincup Pass Road back to St Elmo. There will be minor time for photos and exploring. Nat Geo Map 130. 200 mi. 19/2700’. Register with leader. Eric Hunter ehunter67@yahoo.com or (719) 266-9647.
