To complete the loop, take the LT to the Babcock Trail intersection. From here, Devil's Gulch is an optional out and back (approximately 1 mile). Once back at the intersection, take the Babcock Trail back to the main road and return to the parking lot (approximately a quarter mile from the trail).

Would not recommend this trail because my friend and I were chased out of there by a black bear that came out of a tree.

Nice quiet hike-a couple scenic views and the gulch is one of Vermonts hidden treasures that shouldn't be missed

Very easy hike. More of a hilly, narrow trail walk with a couple of steep parts. Lots of wildlife along the way though. Very peaceful and green. GPS had me at 4.11 miles in a little under 2 hours.

Snowshoed here with a friend in 2013 - don't remember if he had been here before or had a map/guidebook, but we had some trouble finding the gulch. Once we did, however, AMAZING ice was there to greet us. Sheets and layers had formed on top of one another, dyed blue and yellow and green from the minerals in the rocks they covered, and what massive icicles! It took a lot of caution however, because with all the snow and ice under foot, there were several chasms you couldn't see. Poles for poking were a must. A year later I went back with my SO, using the Green Mountain Club's winter hikes guide as a reference. Unfortunately the map did not match the written directions, and neither appeared to be accurate. We were not able to find the gulch. I'll be going back this coming winter and trying again. Admittedly we gave up pretty quickly last year as neither of us were feeling that great.

Did this hike with a friend of mine. Was hard to find at first. The trailhead is not far from Belvedere pond. There is an actual parking area, but it is not marked. There is a little sign that says "access" on the road to the parking area /trailhead. At trailhead follow sign for Devils Gulch.This was a fairly easy hike in. It is part of the long trail.
