Dry Gulch has access to two unique destinations that aren’t summits: a field of airplane wreckage and the towering line of snow fences on Mount Bethel. Nearly all the summits in this area are hard earned, either from the steepness of the slopes or the scrambling required to reach their tops. Also, don’t expect there to be trails beyond the initial access road—though navigation tends to be straightforward. Loops to Loveland Ski Area’s peaks or up and over to the Loveland Tunnel West parking area are options.
