Switzerland Trail & Pennsylvania Gulch

Read about a loop where I could go down the historic Switzerland Trail 3.7 miles to the historic "town" of Sunset, head SW for 1.9 miles up Pennsylvania Gulch about 1,500' and then 4.3 miles back to Sugarloaf. I was happy that there is a shooting ban right now and would have solitude

Heading up Pennsylvania Gulch. Best I can tell this trail exists from the mining days

An unexpected strand of aspens

A surprising strecth of smooth road near the end of Pennsylvania Gulch (also known as County Road 95J) - better than most County Roads in Colorado

Heading back on the South Switzerland Trail (also known as Country Road 120J)
