The City of Golden offers an extensive and interconnected trail system of 24 miles, providing diversity in both types of trail experience and destinations. Regional Trail connections provide a link to neighboring communities and open space.
Nightbird Gulch Trail is in the Jefferson County trail system, providing access to Mount Galbraith Park. The trail is rough, with many rock steps and ledges. It is hiker only.
Access the trail via Valley View Court and Canyon Point Circle.
The trail is moderate to advanced in difficulty and accesses the Front Range Foothills.
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.
