Details

This 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. Chances are really good to see wild flowers.  There is a gift shop at the Center!  If the group is willing, we can hike over to the Buffalo Bill Musuem.  Think they sell fudge at the gift shop. We return via the same route. This will be a Bobcat lite trip were we go at a more casual pace. Map for the hike: http://jeffco.us/parks/parks-and-trails/windy-saddle-park/

*This is a Bobcats trip. The Bobcats' mission is to ensure a variety of challenging CMC trips, especially “B Difficult” and “C” hikes and Difficult Snowshoes, for our mostly age-50+ constituents. We may sponsor other activities of interest to our members, everything from bike rides to camping. Although we have members, we don’t have dues or elections, and our trips are non-exclusive. We welcome all CMC members to sign up for any Bobcats trip regardless of age or Bobcats membership.
