Devil's Gulch Road goes NE of Estes Park and is the continuation of MacGregor Ave. It is the road off which the Gem Lake Trailhead, the new Lumpy Ridge access point, Alligator Rock, Crescent Arch, Sheep Mountain, Pulpit Rock, Rabbit Ears' Rock, Combat Rock, Cedar Park Slab (aka Seam Rock), and other miscellaneous crags can be accessed. The shortest line of access to some of these crags go through private lands, so check out your approach and ownership of the land if you explore beyond the established crags.
Devil's Gulch & Dry Gulch Roads are located N and E of Estes Park. Devil's Gulch Rd, an NE-SW road, is the continuation of MacGregor Ave as it passes the old Twin Owls parking lot access through MacGregor Ranch and continues past the Gem Lake Trailhead access. It continues down towards Glen Haven and eventually Drake. Dry Gulch Rd, a N-S road, lies to the East of Estes Park and is accessed off US 34 on the N side of Lake Estes. It passes the east flank of Mt. Olympus and the obvious, now closed, Eagle Rock and Eagle Rock School Road. Its northern terminus lies just E of Devil's Gulch Rd.
