Well Gulch Nature Trail

      Hi Wendy - the hike is 9am - arriving around 15 minutes prior to start is always advisable :). Yes - you can come ! We almost never fill up and ther is usually some no shows (unfortunately)! But always good to ask! We cannot go over 15 people or we need to apply for a special permit
