Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

Susan Joy Paul
"Black Canyon Creek flows southeast from Mummy Mountain through Black Canyon, parallels Lumpy Ridge, and empties into Big Thompson River in Estes Park. At MacGregor Falls the creek cascades sharply through a narrow passage, twists through boulders, and slip-slides over a granite slab in a frothy sheet." Read more
Stewart M. Green
"MacGregor Slab is an impressive 600-foot-high granite shield pasted on the southwest slopes of Mac-Gregor Mountain, northwest of Estes Park. The southwest-facing slab, looming above the Fall River Entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park, offers a great selection of moderate multipitch routes up cracks, corners, and slabs. The slab’s center has the hardest climbs, tricky enough to challenge most climbers, while the right and left sides present fairly easy routes." Read more
