About a half mile from the fork, turn right at the Gashouse Gulch sign onto FSR 550D

FSR550D ends at a parking area and trailhead. At the trailhead, the Redskin Creek and Gashouse Gulch Trails intersect. For this hike, go right (counter-clockwise) onto the Gashouse Gulch Trail.

Take the Gashouse Gulch Trail to the Baldy Trail.

This part of the Gashouse Trail is wide open, with great views of the surrounding area. The trail goes through an area that was burned out during a wildfire in the late 1980's

At about 1.75 miles, bear left onto the Baldy Trail.

The Baldy Trail winds its way through a wooded area, making it more enjoyable on hot summer days.

At about 3.4 miles, the trail enters a small grove of aspens, something to keep in mind when fall foliage season comes around.

At approximately 5.25 miles, the Baldy Trail intersects the top of the Gashouse Trail. Turn left here.
Bob Falcone
Follow the Gashouse Gulch Trail for just under 2 miles to return to the parking area and trailhead. This part of the loop is also mostly shaded. at approximately 7.1 miles, you'll be back at the trailhead.
