Gulpha Gorge Trail
Park at the amphitheater parking area in Gulpha Gorge Campground. The trailhead is across Gulpha Creek at the end of the stepping stones; take the left trail. The first half of this trail is steep. To our right, Gulpha Gorge Trail winds up the mountain to meet Hot Springs Mountain Trail and Goat Rock Trail. Mortared stone water bars cross this path; a bench offers rest just before the summit.
