Mayflower Gulch is an easy to get to or hike to (2 miles if you don't have 4. X4). Take in amazing views and explore cool old mining ruins. There are also great camping spots.

Getting to the Mayflower Gulch is pretty easy, you can either hike an easy 2 mile forest road or drive all the way to end (you need decent clearance for the drive). At the end of the hike you are greeted with a stunning view of the Old Boston mining site. During the summer, wildflowers are abundant, which makes for great photos. the trail is also popular for snowshoeing in the winter.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.

Overall rating: 

Great views!

Hiked from the main parking lot up to the mining structures, then took the road that veers right at the top (south I believe), and went up and over the saddle. Not many people on that trail, and some great views!

Hot wildflower spot

Prime spot for wildflowers in mid-July and a great location for night photography.

Great Day Hike

This makes such a great day hike as well!
