Details

We will hike this 5.0 mile lollipop-shaped hike in a clockwise manner.  The trail generally climbs from its starting point at the Fowler Trail TH, turns south onto Spring Brook North Trail, crosses the South Boulder diversion canal onto the Goshawk Ridge Trail which eventually swings around to the north to the high point.  The Goshawk Ridge Trail then drops somewhat steeply down to an intersection with the Fowler Trail just outside Eldorado Canyon.  We will make an out and back to Eldorado Canyon to check out the climbers then take the Fowler Trail back to the TH.  We'll see some interesting terrain, some excellent views, some flowers, some wildlife, some remnants of 19th & 20th century enterprises, the canal, and depending on our timing a train or two.

Notes

Depending on the timing, we may stop for an after-hike social in Golden
