Buck Gulch Loop Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The uphill portion of this run is no joke, since there are hardly any truly flat sections where you can catch your breath. If you can ignore the rasp of your own tortured breathing, feel free to take in the excellent view of surrounding peaks and valleys.
Grade: The trail designer conveniently packed nearly all of the vertical gain into a 2.4-mile stretch between mile 0.8 and mile 3.2, so you can agonize through a continuous ten-degree angle of ascent in one fun-filled segment. Once you crawl to the top, the rest of the run is a breeze, with a packed sand base underfoot."
