Join the Colorado Mountain Club in our Women Crush Wednesday Series!  



There is an optional "Wine Down Wednesday" happy hour at our favorite Brewery, Barrels & Bottles, after the hike. Check out their website here: https://www.barrelsbottles.com/.



Start out at the lower trailhead for White Ranch park in Golden and begin up Belcher Hill. The first section winds through a valley, crossing a short rocky area, leading up to the Belcher Hill climb about a mile up. Follow Belcher Hill on a rough washed out 4wd type road. Pass Whippletree on the right and continue up to Longhorn Trail on the right about 0.25 miles further up. Take Longhorn to Shorthorn Trail. Stay left at Shorthorn. Follow Shorthorn for about a mile until it meets with Longhorn again. Longhorn can no longer be accessed to the right, heading down, as this is now BIKES ONLY. From this junction, head back the way you came, only this time, head left down Longhorn Trail. As you get towards the bottom of Longhorn, there will be one short, steep climb back up to Whippletree. Head back on Whippletree to rejoin with the Belcher Hill trail for the last mile back to the parking area.



Dogs on leashes are okay on the hike - however, Barrels & Bottles does not allow dogs.




Notes

Please bring the essential ten essentials on the hike. Click here for the complete list.  This trail has some sun exposure, so please be sure to bring sun protection (sunscreen, hat, and sunglasses).  In August, we also need to be wary of Rattlesnakes bikes, and heat. So, bring lots of water, and be on the lookout.
