  • 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

    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!

    What kind of hike is this? Difficult? Moderate?

      I haven't hiked it, but it looks like its 5 miles and "moderate" online.
