Herman Gulch Trail (#98)

  

A photo of the trail sign, Herman Gul. Trail No. 98. Trail is in the background.

Starting on an old sawmill road, this trail emerges out of the forested trees within a mile of traveling. The subalpine flowers add beauty to an otherwise rocky terrain. Towards the top of the trail, rock cairns (rock piles) lead the way to Herman Lake. This trail is a section of the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail.
