: Jefferson County Open Space
700 Jefferson County Pkwy.
Golden, CO 80401
This is one one of my favorites due to the incredible panoramic views and yet so close to Denver. The front side incline is too steep for snowy conditions and makes it slippery. As we all know, usually we get snow on Halloween(or the day before), so please check Friday night to see the status.
The address listed is the address for the Jeffco Open Space office. It is not for the trailhead.
Address: 4655 Ward Rd., Wheat Ridge
Directions to the park-n-ride: From 44th Ave. & Ward Rd., continue north on Ward Rd. approximately .22 miles, left into the park-n-Ride. We will plan on leaving this park-n-ride at 8:30 am.
Take I-70 West to Exit 265. Take 58 to the intersection with 93. Turn right onto State Highway 93. Go about a mile and take Golden Gate Canyon Road (There is a sign) west approximately 1.5 miles to the parking area and trailhead.
The hike: This hike is what's know as a lollipop. You hike out 1.3 miles, do a loop (1.6 miles) and do the same 1.3 miles back. Elevation gain is about 500 ft. That makes for a total of 4.2 miles. We'll start this hike around 10:00 am.
Fido is allowed on his/her leash.
