Access the trail via the Clear Creek Trail west of the Clear Creek RV Park.
Parking lot at the Golden Community Center and on West Highway 6.
The trail is moderate.
The Front Range of Colorado touches three distinct ecosystems – grassland prairie, pinyon-ponderosa woodlands and montane – that support a rich variety of mammals, birds, amphibians and reptiles. Rabbit, hare, prairie dog, fox, coyote, badger, bobcat, mule deer, elk, black bear and mountain lion all call the Front Range their home.
