Hike McCullough Gulch to Upper Blue Reservoir
Colorado › McCullough Gulch Trailhead
Added by The Outbound Collective
With peaks, lakes, and waterfalls, this trail is steep in parts, but always scenic and worth the push.
The trail first takes you to Upper Blue Reservoir, about 1.4 miles in. Past this point, it can be somewhat tricky to find the trail, but for experienced hikers, the upper valley holds a number of lakes, a waterfall, and open tundra for exploring. Mountain goat sightings are also common in this area, so keep an eye out!
