Who knew such a lovely wildflower hike was tucked into the high country of Clear Creek? Come see it for yourself.

Butler Gulch is about 4.8 miles round trip with an elevation gain of about 1,600 feet. Forest opens into a huge, flower-filled expanse. We top out just shy of 12,000 feet at some old, rusty mining equipment. This is a moderate hike.

Adults only for this hike. We will max out at 10 participants.

Dogs are allowed, but must be on a leash. (Link)
