Saturday pick your distance hike -- Centennial Cone, Golden

  • November 3, 2012 · 10:00 AM

Join us for a pick your distance hike at Centennial Cone Park near Golden. Go as short as 2.3 miles or up to 7-8 miles roundtrip depending on your speed. (If you really want a challenge, carpool with the right people and try the whole 11 or so mile loop.) Park map.

(Right now we have about 4 people interested in the short distance and most interested in the 7-8 mile option.)

Here's the plan:

10:05am: Carpoolers meet at 10:05am (leave 10:15am) at the intersection of Highway 93 and Golden Gate Canyon Road in Golden. It's a 10 mile drive to the trailhead on curvy mountain roads. (please give carpool drivers $3 each for gas.)

10:45am(ish) arrive at trailhead, meet non-carpoolers.Google 4306 Camino Perdido, Golden 80403 for directions.

11am: Hike starts on Travois Trail. Slower hikers (or just those wanting a short distance) should plan to do the Travois Trail to the Evening Sun loop, have lunch somewhere there and return for a 2.3 mile hike. The fast gang should plan to hike as far as they can for 90 minutes (til 12:30), have lunch for 30 minutes and hike back, returning at 2:30pm to the trailhead.

Let's try to carpool back at 2:30.

No dogs please

    Is this a loop or out and back? The one side of the trail looks like its 7.4 miles? If I want to go 7-8 miles it would be turn around after half? I'm not sure of the map marking of the distance. Thanks.

      Hi Trish-- My suggestion is to hike out as far as you can in 90 minutes, stop and half lunch and hike back.

    Are there any planning to do the entire trail which looks about 11.8 miles long?? I am considering it.

      Dave, the map shows 11.8 miles, but I've heard it might actually be 13-14. Just FYI.
