Goulding Creek Trail
Part of the Hermosa Creek Trail System.
Goulding Creek Trail is especially nice in September and early October when the aspen groves are shimmering gold. It’s a moderately difficult, 6-mile round-trip hike that climbs above Hermosa Cliffs near Tamarron Resort. Three miles up the trail is a spot that offers a view into the secluded Hermosa Creek Roadless Area, one of the best elk summering grounds in Southwest Colorado.
