This is a great location close to Denver, Lakewood, Arvada, Golden and the surrounding areas. You will find great views of the city while on the trail. The wild flowers are in full bloom. Normally dear like to meander across the trails.

Hiking is risky. Every year people are hurt and killed because they go beyond their abilities, get lost, or bring the wrong gear. I spend hours researching hikes and rely on various sources, but I can't vouch for their accuracy. I am not a professional guide, you are responsible for yourself. By signing up for this hike you acknowledge that you are solely responsible for your own safety and will do the necessary research to understand the conditions of this hike and the gear you require.
