The Gulches

Where To Go: The Gulches | Stay The Trail

Teller County, Colorado

The Gulches are a series of roads that lead deep into the heart of the Hayman Burn area and the South Platte River. Closed after the fire in 2002 for restoration, they have recently opened with some restrictions to allow for some very unique opportunities to see the forest recovery in progress.
