Trail Reroute and Rehab Overnight Project

Breckenridge, Aug. 22

All Day, McCullough Gulch. Friday night arrival encouraged. Just over eight miles outside of Breckenridge. This beautiful trail gives you the feeling of being lost in the woods as it winds up past a series of waterfalls before reaching a beautiful glacier-carved lake. It currently includes a central loop which, through increased use, now serves as a central point for a myriad of social trails that crisscross it and branch out beyond. Volunteers will permanently close half of the central loop and restore the surrounding social trails.
