McCullough Gulch Trail #43 is a 1.43 mile one way hike with 854 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 62 miles southwest of Boulder Colorado. July and August are the best months to enjoy this hike.

The trail is located south of Breckenridge on the north side of Quandary Peak, elevation 14,265 feet.

Although private property exists along this trail, hikers and mountain bikers are allowed access and are asked to stay on the trail.
