Location

White Ranch Open Space, Golden. We will meet at the CMC parking lot in Golden.  Please arrive a few minutes early for a prompt 7:00 am departure.

If it is closer for you, you can meet us at the White Ranch WEST Trailhead, for the Belcher Hill Trail.  Please let the leader know if you plan to meet us at the trailhead.

We will travel a loop of the Belcher Hill, Mustang, and Sawmill trails. This is a casual pace outing.

It is likely to be hot (though our early start should help with that), so please bring plenty of water and sun protection.  We will stop for a snack/light lunch before returning to the trailhead.

DIRECTIONS:

White Ranch WEST Trailhead, for the Belcher Hill Trail.  From Golden, go west on Golden Gate Canyon Road almost 4 miles, the right on Crawford Gulch Road just over 3-1/2 miles, then right on Drew Hill Road to the west entrance to White Ranch Open Space Park.  Our trailhead is on the left just after entering the park - NOT the larger parking lot at the end of the road.
