Details

Starting from the “barely-there” town of Tolland, snowshoe up Mammoth Gulch, which is located just a mile or so east of the Moffat Tunnel. This seldom-visited trail offers gorgeous views of South Arapahoe Peak to the north, the southern Indian Peaks and the west face of James Peak. Depending on weather conditions there are options to stay in the trees to visit an old reservoir and mining sites or go to the top of Mammoth Gulch road for lunch and the views.



Don’t forget to bring your Ten Essentials.



There will be an optional celebratory stop after the hike.
