Hike Coulson Gulch Trail & Lunch

Let's set out on a beautiful Saturday afternoon hike.

This is a dog friendly hike where Dogs can be off leash. The trail meanders back and forth across a small stream, goes through meadows, through pines up and down hills and on a a dirt road for a while till we reach the bridge crossing North Saint Vrain Creek.  There are plenty of shady resting spots.

This will be our lunch spot and turn around point. One-way distance-2.8 miles. Difficulty level-moderate

If you wanted to you could continue on The North Sheep Mountain Trail. However it is not much used and is more of a navigation exercise than a trail. I believe this would add an additional 5 miles onto the hike.

Directions: ~ NOT IN BOULDER ~ as states above.

From Lyons, travel 9.5 miles west on U.S. Highway 36. Turn southwest onto Larimer County Road (CR) 47. Follow CR 47 for three miles and veer left onto National Forest System Road 118 as the paved road curves right to enter Big Elk Meadows subdivision. Coulson Gulch Trailhead is to the left immediately after NFSR 118 crosses the cattle guard.
