Overview
Goulding Creek Trail #517 is a 2.95 mile one way hike with 2,124 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 17 miles north of Durango Colorado. August and June are the best months to enjoy this hike.


This trail provides access to the Pinkerton-Flagstaff Trail and also to the eastern half of Hermosa Creek. The trail traverses up several steep switchbacks for the first mile and a half and then levels out. It then travels through some open meadows that are full of native plants and flowers and continues slightly uphill through aspen groves to a cabin near the head of the Pinkerton-Flagstaff Trail. Water is available in several streams, but should be filtered, due to problems with Giardia in the area.

Check out the Official Route.

Note
This is a more difficult hike. It would be unwise to attempt this without prior experience hiking.
