Park on the southside of Stratton Circle, just past Burns Dr. The trail starts as a two-track to the top of Lookout Point. All mileages in this slideshow start at the base of the two-track.

As you climb up the two-track several hundred feet to the top of Lookout Pt, the road will fork. You can go either way. I went to the left and all mileages are based on going that way. At the top, continue south and look for this sign nailed to a tree on the south side of the hill. It will be easy to see.
Bob Falcone
When facing the BLM notice, turn left and walk down hill in the direction shown
Bob Falcone
About 250' down the hill look for this cairn, then turn right as shown by the arrow.
Bob Falcone
After making the turn look for this large cairn down to the south and continue past it in the general direction shown.
Bob Falcone
Continue following the rock cairns down the gulch. If the cairns are missing, stay to the left of the gulch and below the rock ridge to your left. About half way down, the passage narrows, and you will cross the gulch and then cross back over to the left side.
Bob Falcone
At about a half-mile from the trailhead, the gulch opens up to a grassy knoll. Continue straight and look for a cairn in the middle. Continue on, bearing slightly to the right.
Bob Falcone
As you continue across the knoll and bearing slightly to the right look for this cairn, and view of a pond and earthen dam. Continue past the cairn, downhill and to the right side of the dam.
Bob Falcone
Cross the dam and turn right just past the large pine tree at the other side of the dam, and then continue to the right on a two-track on the other side.
Bob Falcone
Once crossing the dam and turning right, following the two-track uphill and to the left. At about .85 miles this trail meets a wide ranch road. This the actual trail into Pony Gulch. Turn right here.
Bob Falcone
The remainder of this hike, until the turn-around point, follows the old ranch road. At about 1.7 miles, go to the left of this gate and continue on the ranch road.
Bob Falcone
After passing the gate, the road turns right and downhill. At the bottom of the hill is the old homestead on the right, and the road turns left here.
Bob Falcone
Continue to the left downhill past the homestead. A few hundred feet down, look for this turn to the right and continue on.
Bob Falcone
The trail continues down with Pony Gulch to the left. The trail goes to the left of this large rock formation.
Bob Falcone
At about 2.5 miles from the trail start, several hundred feet after the rock formation, the trail comes to it's official end at this draw. Turn around here and return by following the route back to Lookout Point.
