Second Hidden Gems hike is planned near Eagle
Eagle County, CO Colorado
EAGLE COUNTY, Colorado – The Hidden Gems free hike series kicked off in Eagle County last weekend with a hike to Bull Gulch on the west side of Castle Peak.
Due to the popularity of the first hike, a second trip to Bull Gulch is now scheduled for Sunday, June 14.
The Hidden Gems Hike Series returns this summer with a full schedule of outings into proposed wilderness areas.
Hikes to the Hidden Gems Wilderness proposal areas will take place every weekend in Eagle, Summit and Pitkin counties. In Eagle County, this includes hikes to Castle Peak, Spraddle Creek, Bald Mountain, West Lake Creek, Adam Mountain, Red Table Mountain and more. The full hiking schedule is posted at the Hidden Gems website, http://www.whiteriverwild.org.
Advance registration is required, and can be done through the Web site or by calling hike coordinator Collin Stewart at 970-963-3977.
The hike series is organized by the Hidden Gems Wilderness Campaign, which is advocating for several new wilderness areas in and around the White River National Forest, as well as significant expansions of popular existing areas such as the Eagles Nest Wilderness.
