Headed up the trail around 10am on 11/9/19 as the forecast for FOCO was to be 70 degrees. We began with a shortcut up through Wells Gulch where there was hard ice ascending the bottom portion though as we gained elevation it was icy only in spots. We went slowly and encountered snowy and muddy spots along the ridge and on the way down that were manageable with hiking shoes and no gaiters. Beautiful mountain views to the West along the ridge!

First half mile of the trail was very slick. Got much better after that. Beautiful views for a relatively short out and back trail. would reccomend for anyone!

Nice short trail with excellent views. Really high traffic though

Hiked this with two toddlers, the three year old was able to hike about 3 miles of it. With snack breaks and rests it took us about 5 hours to complete. Fun views and easy terrain. Would love to bike this!

Beautiful views. Do recommend going right when beginning the loop. Otherwise your back is to the mountain on your way up The switchbacks

Follow up here. Gordon Gulch is prob the entire part of the Hewlett Trail that is in the flat gulch vs ending at the left loop turnoff point. When the trail goes up at the gulch's end, a sign would be nice saying you are now starting the 2.7 loop.

Trail signs are useless on this trail. I recommend not going counter-clockwise if alone and noone else on the loop, like today. I got confused at a T intersection after prob 2 miles on the loop. Did a few extra miles as a result. I should've read all the posts here suggesting to do it clockwise. Apparently, Gordon Gulch, mentioned on the trailhead sign in the parking lot, is the 3.1 section to a Hewlett Gulch sign at the beginning of the loop junction. Pretty much just ignore that sign. It says Hewlett Trail and has arrows pointing to Gordon Gulch trail (Where you came from) and to the counter-clockwise beginning of the ridgeline loop trail. At this same spot is a left turn option, not mentioned on the sign, and 20 yards up is a second Hewlett Trail sign, with an arrow pointing up. Again, useless. Is it the loop or not? I learned post the hike that the loop part is not maintained, so maybe that's the reason for the confusing signs and lack of a loop trail name. That said, the loop has a nice trail on it, and nice views. Weather today was perfect.

Cold and windy fall day, but beautiful. Made the whole loop with Bella, going left at the fork (uphill)

Hiked on a Saturday, started at 2PM. Great fall colors, and very limited traffic throughout the entirety of the hike. Pretty good views, but wouldn’t be my first choice if going purely for sightseeing. Overall a good exercise session in a great environment.

Trail was hard to follow a little bit around 3.5 miles. Only found it from someone else who was on the trail with us. Only saw one other person on the trail. A good amount of snow, but still an awesome hike!

Easy/moderate hike on a trail that is very well maintained and easy to navigate, with switchbacks and a small rock scramble at the end to reward you with great views in every direction. My doggo and I saw an abundance of wildlife, including white-tail deer, a red fox, and chipmunks galore. The hike up to Arthur’s Rock took us 30 min. Also, there are rock walls at the end of the hike for all you climbers out there.

Gate to crystal lake is closed. I took 44 out to avoid going down that crazy ledge towards the beginning of the trail. Got up it in my 2014 tundra w/2.5” lift on 33’s.

Great views, even a four-point buck! I love that there are connecting trails that provide long and wonderful hikes!

Ended up doing the full 8 mile loop because we failed to look at the map beforehand lol. We even went what I would consider the hard way (take a left at the split to head up the mountain instead of going right which would bring you down the mountain). Only saw one garter snake. Most the trail is sunny and uncovered by trees or rock cliffs.

Great moderate trail with amazing views at the top. Last section is very steep and rocky but worth the view.

Beautiful trail with an amazing view of the lake. Close to town. Pretty rocky and technical for mountain biking.

good trail, it climbs pretty fast so I dont recommend bringing your folks here from out east right away. hiked when it was foggy and still had some great views of the ominous fog. definitely bring some water when going up this trail, you'll need it. otherwise pretty fun and easy to navigate.

Once you make it to the top it’s so worth it. It’s very rocky so make sure you wear good hiking shoes!!
