Herman Gulch Trail #98 is a 6.65 mile round trip hike with 1,800 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 40 miles southwest of Boulder Colorado. July and August are the best months to enjoy this hike.
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
