This is not a reliable destination due to the fact that it is south-facing and receives full sun all day. This means it comes in and out depending on the weather and doesn't come in at all some years. It only freezes up with ample snow on the ground, several days of cloudy skies, and very cold temps.
Use the pullout, on the North side of US Highway 6, for the Mayhem Gulch trail. This is about 3 miles West (up canyon) from Tunnel 3 or 2 miles east (down canyon) of the junction of US 6 and CO 119. The climbing area is about a 10 minute hike up Mayhem Creek. Do not take the Mayhem Gulch hiker/biker trail.

If thin, which it often is, it can be sketchy. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
