Washington Gulch has some of the best wildflower displays around. Come explore the Land Trust’s beautiful parcel of preserved open space, and hunt the elusive Orchid, enchanting Twisted Stalk, Bishop’s Cap, Monkey Plant and a myriad of other plants and flowers. This hike is mellow, and suitable for all. High-clearance vehicles recommended.
This hike is part of the Crested Butte Wildflower Festival, and you can register through their website:
