  • Hike at Windy Saddle Park and have coffee/lunch at the Windy Saddle Cafe in Golden after the hike!

    If someone who has hiked here a few times could post info. on the best place to meet, that would be terrific.  I think there may be a couple of entrances to the trail.  Thanks!

    OK. Very dark here in Golden, and starting to sprinkle/thunder, so for safety reasons we're going to have to cancel the hike. Two weeks in a row. Darn!
    We will definitely reschedule this for two weeks out. Hopefully the skies will be clear for our next few hikes!

    Sorry to bail on you when I suggested the trail, just not into hiking up a hill when weather is threatening. Hope you all have fun.

    I've got dark skies and thunder here. It's not raining here yet, but I don't want to hike in a storm so I'm off to spin class instead

  • Pat M.

    Darn! I will also not be there if it's raining and thundering. Guess I'm off to the Y instead. Hope to meet up with you all soon.

    Morning all...it's raining here now, and I'm going to bow out of the hike today. One less car. Hope you all have a wonderful hike and I'll see you in 2 weeks. Be out of town next week. I'll miss seeing you guys and going to the Windy Saddle after!

    Just wondering if this is still a go or not? I've got thunder and very dark skies in the Littleton area.

    Hi - To get to this trailhead:
    -Turn off of 6th onto 19th in Golden (I'm not good with North-South directions, but go away from the school of mines / uphill).
    -19th will curve around and turn into Lookout Mtn. Road in less than 1/2 mile.
    -Go through the stone pillars, drive less than 1 mile on Lookout Mtn. Road, and the trailhead will be on your left. It is a small parking area (room for about 4 cars), and there is a sign that says "Chimney Gulch".

    If anyone can carpool, please do. I live in Golden about 5 mins. away.

    Hope for good weather!

      I'm not sure. There may be a little parking on the side of the road there. Ugh!

      Maybe people could meet in town somewhere there's parking and carpool from there.

    I live in NW Arvada and can drive/carpool if anyone lives in my general area. I'm new to CO so don't know my way around all that well. Hoping to find the trailhead & see you tomorrow for my first local hike.

    dang! I like having visitors but it sure messes with my hiking schedule. That and the weather are killing it! Hope to see you next time!
