Lyon Gulch TH is between Lyons and Estes Park off Hwy-36.  This TH was closed for four years after the 2013 flood.  It is  now open following extensive reconstruction.  The trails goes up a narrow drainage for 3 miles and then opens into a meadow area which was homesteaded in the late 1800's.  While most of this is now public land, remnants of the old homesteads still exist and the USFS has marked the locations for historical significance.  We hike up about 5 miles and visit some of these historical sites.  About 400 ft of the elevation gain is on the return.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
