“A technical ascent from the neighborhood to the trails of the Mt. Galbraith Loop.”— Michael Robbert
This singletrack trail is mostly exposed with very little shade. Though hot in the summer, this is one of those trails that is great a couple of days after rain or snow as most of it dries out pretty quickly. Large sections of this trail are steep and rocky with a few sections in between to catch your breath and check out the view of Golden. While strenuous, the route is scenic, offering different views than some of the other trails.
