Mayflower Gulch is the ultimate “build your own adventure” trailhead. Eight excellent summits are waiting to be claimed by a variety of routes. Interestingly, none of them have established trails (partially due to mining claims in the area). The scrambling on these peaks is top-notch, most notably on the airy, exposed west ridge of Pacific Peak. The trio of Crystal–Pacific–Atlantic may be the very best combined hiking/scrambling route in Colorado. Besides the summit appeal, the mining history in the basin area makes for a good add-on adventure.
