Monument Gulch to West White Pine

The start and finish of this loop is at the Donner Pass trailhead next to the ranger station in Box Prairie, CO. With the exception of a short section of the route between Old Flowers and White Pine, this route is on Jeep/ATV roads so you may encouter some traffic.

As long as there aren’t any early snow storms, this is an ideal route to catch some fall colors.
