From Hwy 20 in Winthrop, take W Chewuch Road north .9 miles and turn left onto Rendezvouz Rd. Proceed 1 mile and turn left onto Gunn Ranch Rd. After .8 miles there will be a small parking lot on the left side down a short turnoff from the road. The parking lot is not visible at first but if you drive past it you will likely see the it down below. The trail head is on the opposite side of the road. Discover Pass required.

The balsamroot and lupine are nearing full bloom providing for a colorful short moderate hike. I chose to hike the loop clockwise and flowers were blooming on both sections of the loop. Some nice views of the Methow Valley but the wildflowers were the main attraction on this early May hike.
