Ben Tyler who lived with his family in the gulch along a creek that now also bears his name. Tyler made his money by hauling lumber to South Park for the booming town of Fairplay during the gold rush.

Beginning almost at the trailhead itself, the trail climbs steeply in a dozen or so switchbacks. The trail then flattens out and the creek that has been down in the gulch now flows on the left and provides easy access for a wallow or swim for your dog.
