When you stand amid the boulders that line the floor of the dark, narrow Devil’s Gulch, it’s not hard to imagine time turning back a century or even ten centuries. This murky gorge, untouched by modern times, is almost primeval and is sure to be the setting of ghost stories invented on the ride home. But the gulch isn’t the only thing for kids to look forward to: Views from Ritterbush Lookout, dozens of stream crossings over stepping stones and log bridges, kid-sized waterfalls and cascades, and the Green Mountain Club’s (GMC) Spruce Ledge Camp will keep them excited from start to finish. Unlike most hiking routes, you will descend on the hike in and ascend on the return trip.
