If you are out hiking during hunting season, it wouldn't be a bad idea to wear some hunters orange.  You can buy hat's and vests at any big box retailer of sporting good store.  Better safe than shot!

Subject: [hiking-381] New Meetup: Burro Trail - Golden Gate Canyon State Park

Announcing a new Meetup for The Longmont Hiking Meetup Group!

What: Burro Trail - Golden Gate Canyon State Park

When: Sunday, December 12,[masked]:30 AM

Where: Whole Foods
2584 Baseline Rd
Boulder, CO 80305

Let's try this one again. I spoke to the park and there will be hunting for the remainder of the winter but they told me that people have been hiking this trail all season with no incidents or reason for concern.

If you would like to carpool, we will be meeting in the parking lot at the corner of Baseline and Broadway in Boulder, in front of Whole Foods at 10:30 am. Please make a note in your rsvp.

This hike is approximately 6.35 miles round trip with an elevation gain of 1300 feet.

And yes, Tacoma, dogs are allowed.

Please remember to bring plenty of snacks and water to keep up your energy. There is no snow to speak of there at the moment but the weather changes constantly so please be prepared for all conditions.

There is a $7 entry fee to Golden Gate Canyon State Park which will be shared among the carpoolers. A $1.00 donation would be appreciated to help keep the site running.

Directions to Trailhead
The Burro Trail is accessed from the Bridge Creek trailhead in Golden Gate Canyon State Park. Three parking lots service this trailhead; the third, easternmost parking lot is located at the trailhead itself.

From Golden:
Take Highway 93 north from Golden one mile to Golden Gate Canyon Road. Turn left and continue 13 miles to the Vistor Center. Turn right on Crawford Gulch Road for 2.45 miles to the trailhead and parking lot. If full, park at one of the first two lots and walk back up the road. Please let us know if you will be meeting us at the trailhead. If so, please be there by 11:15 am.
