Camino Perdido Trail

  • Apr 11, 2013 · 9:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

This is the north access to Centennial Cone at Camino Perdido.  An easy/moderate scenic 5+ mile roundtrip hike with around 600 feet of elevation gain.  The park centers on Centennial Cone, an 8879-foot-high peak which has deep drainage systems (filled with Narrow Leaf cottonwoods and willows) to the west (Mayhem Gulch) and east (Elk Creek) that drain down into Clear Creek Canyon. South of Centennial Cone, steep slopes, covered with grass, junipers and Mountain Mahogany brush, plunge 2000 feet down to Clear Creek. North, and especially northeast, the terrain is gentle grassland with large willow trees in the drainages. Trail could be muddy so come prepared with good traction shoes, poles and micro spikes, if needed.

Carpooling: Meet at 8:30am on the shoulder of Golden Gate Canyon Road (just off Hwy 93) where we'll form some carpools.

Optional Lunch after the hike at El Tapatio Mexican Restaurant located at 714 Golden Ridge Road, Golden, CO 80401, Phone [masked]-7565.

Directions to Trailhead: North Access - Take Colorado Hwy 93 to Golden Gate Canyon Road.  Travel west about 8 miles to Robinson Hill Road.  Turn left and continue to Camino Perdido, the north access road into the Park.  The trailhead is approximately 1 mile south.  There is a bathroom at the trailhead.

See you there!

    Very quick hike, not too tough. I liked our leader's fun attitude. Great group, even shared gear. Fun lunch afterwards! Look forward to future hikes with this welcoming group.

    The hike was good and not much mud or snow. The wind was terrible! Good thing for warm clothes and good friends!

    Cold and windy and pretty miserable, except of course for the warm and friendly co-hikers :)

    Had fun in spite of the wind and getting lost for a short time. Interesting that camino perdido means lost way or road.

    It got a little chilly in the wind but when you're hiking with your friends, it doesn't matter.
