Runner Notes

The North-facing slopes can be muddy in the spring as it takes longer for the snow to melt.

Description

The Gold Loop is accessed from either the Green Loop or the Purple Loop at Philip Miller Park. You can also access it by following the road up from the MAC.

This trail surface is soft and well-maintained giving you the opportunity to take in the views of the Rockies and the Front Range. In the future, there will be access to the Ridgeline Loop via a connector trail over Wolfensburger Road.

Be sure to keep an eye out for rattlesnakes and mountain bikers.
