Finished off 2018 with a close in easy hike before you go celebrate 2019.The hike will start from Parfet Park in Golden, hike a mile west along Clear Creek, cross under Highway 6, join the Chimney Gulch trail west and up for 2.5 miles, catch the Windy Saddle Trail for .6 miles and hike about a mile to the Lookout Nature Center. There will be time to explore the Nature Center and have a picnic as well. There is a gift shop at the Center! We return via the same route. This will be a casual pace hike. Map for the hike:
