Part of the Lower Colorado Trail system.
After hiking 4.05 miles along the Lower Colorado Trail to Gudy’s Rest you can turn left to head down Hoffheins and loop back around from Dry Fork, back to the Colorado Trail. Hoffheins allows the lower Colorado Trail to be accessed as a loop versus the popular out-and-back. Gudy’s Rest (and the Hofheins Trail) can be accessed from the Junction Creek Trailhead or Dry Fork Parking area.
