Trip Reports

Saturday September 17, 2016 Devil's Gulch Hike - LT near Eden VT by Steve and Heather Bailey

We started out from the Belvedere Mt trailhead on Rt 118 and headed south on the LT for 1.7 miles to the junction with the Babcock Trail. A short spur lead to a picturesque cabin on the shore of Ritterbush Pond. We continued on through Devil's Gulch, hopping from one boulder to another, to the Spruce Ledge shelter, where we had lunch on Devil's Perch Outlook. From there we had a nice view of the pond and Belvedere Mountain to the north. We returned to the car via Babcock Trail, passing Big Muddy Pond. There were six hikers in the group.
