The Hoodoo Gap Trail #877 begins at an intersection with the Curecanti Trail #870 at the West Elk Wilderness boundary and ends just past Hoodoo Gap. After leaving the Curecanti Trail, the Hoodoo Gap Trail begins a moderate climb to the southeast through aspen forest, crossing Spruce Creek and Hoodoo Creek along the way. The trail does not get a lot of use and is sometimes difficult to follow. Most of the trail is located in aspen trees with few views of the surrounding mountains. It is a good access to Mount Gunnison for those that wish to climb the 12,719 foot peak. After reaching Hoodoo Gap, the trail breaks up into several game trails that can lead a person farther into the Wilderness.
