Trail time: 1:45
Highlights: A fairly short loop in Eagle Ranch, more difficult climb and descent on the Second/Third Gulch Connector
This hike consists of two long, gradual hills in Second and Third Gulches that are connected by a short, steep section that presents much more of a challenge aerobically, especially on the Third Gulch side. This trail offers a very similar experience when hiked in both directions. There is a creek crossing on Third Gulch which can present a slight challenge when crossing depending on the time of year.
