Guided Access ONLY - Scenic stream gorge. Stebbins Gulch is a dramatic and steep sided stream gorge featuring a series of smaller water falls and a larger drop falls. You must be lead on this recommended hike by an official Holden Arboretum guide on an official scheduled trip.

This trail is only available by guides at Holden Arboretum on certain dates. I didnt go to stebbin gulch hike. However, Holden arboretum charges $10 to go on their trails which are mostly graveled. Very easy walking. There is a canopy trail but you pay $14 instead of $10 if you want that. Overall, it wasnt worth the money to me. Ill give it a 3 star because it has potential and i didn't get to do stebbins gulch. I was told that the hike is difficult and dangerous and thats why a guide is necessary.

Super short path around the creek. Not any real incline or declines. Not much to see in the winter as far as wild flowers.

A wonderful stream gorge with waterfalls and rock carvings... The ice was spectacular!
