Sunset City Gulch, a scenic, wooded valley, traverses the west end of the Grape Creek Proposed Wilderness.

A loop hiking route is possible. Learn about the future of the proposed Wilderness and nearby BLM Lands with Wilderness Characteristics. Expect shallow amounts of snow underfoot. Bring sturdy, water resistant boots, clothes appropriate for the weather forecast, water, lunch, and usual dayhike essentials.
This trip is sponsored by Pikes Peak Group Sierra Club, Wild Connections, and Central Colorado Wilderness Coalition. Maximum 15 participants. A Colorado Springs carpool will depart at 7:45 AM.
