We are going to try this again and hope that the weather is better this time around

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 at North Saint Vrain Creek.

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.

Car pooling : For those interested in car pooling lets meet up at the 88th and Sheridan pnr on the WEST side of hwy 36 not at the parking garage the basic address for this pnr is 5201 w 88 ave Westminster. We will leave the PNR at 9

We will stop in at Lyons for Lunch probably at smoking daves.
