Let's hike the Rawhide Loop the head back into Golden for a bite at the Cast Iron.
Chef-driven means that at Cast Iron, food is always the #1 priority. Owner/Chef Bob Wentworth is in the kitchen every day, ensuring the food that looks good, tastes great, and is served by people who care. It’s a no b.s. philosophy - just honest to goodness, great meals, everyday.
The Rawhide Loop Trail circles White Ranch Park's highest meadows and rolling hills with varied terrain and exceptional views throughout. This transition zone between foothills and montane forest spans a diverse tapestry of meadows, ponderosa parks and mixed conifer.

YOUR RSVP AND ATTENDANCE RELEASES ANY LIABILITY WITH THE ORGANIZERS OF THIS GROUP.
This is a voluntary group, and as such, organizers and event hosts are not professional guides. When you participate in an event, you do so at your own risk and are responsible for your own personal safety, the safety of your guests (and safety of your dogs, should they be allowed- check the rules of the park). Please try to use common sense and know your physical limits. Be smart about this. We want everyone to have a safe, enjoyable time.
Weather changes quickly and mud can be abundant! Please come prepared with appropriate hiking clothing, boots-shoes, hiking poles, microspikes, snowshoes, backpack, snacks, and plenty of water. Make sure you have in your pack in case you need it - rain/snow gear, hat, gloves, extra socks, and extra layers, etc. Make it the best experience possible by being prepared!
Although we get together afterwards at an establishment that typically serves alcohol, we are not responsible for you taking risks with alcohol consumption and driving. People that drive carpools should especially keep this in mind as you are obviously responsible for other people besides yourself and should make sure your insurance covers non-family members.
