The trail leads north following an old road along Gordon Creek past foundations remaining from homesteads established between 1911 and 1925. At the two mile mark there is a fork in the trail. The main trail continues north and winds through a narrow canyon with many stream crossings before heading uphill out of the creek drainage into a meadow. To the left a steep and un-maintained trail is visible. This non-system route leaves the stream and eventually loops back to connect with the trail. Hewlett Gulch trailhead accommodates approximately 22 vehicles. (no trailer parking)

      Ride-able in the am. A little sloppy once the sun comes over the hills. Stream crossings are breakable ice. Some dirt exposed that turned to mud...

      Streams are nice and wet, trail is dry, and the climb is hard. Good to go!
