Route Description for Miller Gulch Loop Trail
The Miller Gulch Loop Trail is not only scenic, it's versatile. In the summer, you can hike, bike, or run this trail; in the winter months you can snowshoe or cross-country ski! This adventure is a wonderful excuse to escape into nature for the day! It is worth noting that this excursion is almost entirely exposed to the elements and there are no water sources along the path. We suggest avoiding this hike on hot, sunny summer days, but if you do venture it, make sure to pack plenty of water for you and your pup, and lather on the sunscreen! With limited elevation gain, this route is also ideal for families. Note it is lengthy, but you could always turn around when people start to tire!
Begin your hike around the Miller Gulch Loop Trail from the trailhead. Track east on the Miller Gulch Trail around the base of Redskin Mountain. Hike along the ridge of the peak and stay left at the first intersection. Continue along the Miller Gulch Trail until the second junction. Here, turn right down an unnamed path. Briefly trek this path, and at the next junction, trek left down Gashouse Trail. Continue along this loop as it guides you out of the sparse tree shade and into meadow. Merge onto Baldy Trail and at the next junction, reconnect with the Gashouse Trail and head northwest.
At this point, you will reconnect with the Miller Gulch Trail. Veer left and retrace your steps back to the parking lot and trailhead.
