Fall colors dayhike
Golden Gate- After a late start due to missing p-slips, we headed up to Golden Gate Canyon State Park on a beautiful fall day. Our intrepid crew became obsessed with finding the perfect hiking stick, and scoured the forest for them on our 2-mile hike up the Horseshoe Trail to Frazer Meadows. Once there, we inspected the old cabin, had lunch, played a game of camoflage out in the meadow, found old ranch machinery, climbed rock outcroppings and in general enjoyed a classic fall day in the Colorado mountains.

Join us for a moderate hike through the forests and meadows of Golden Gate Canyon State Park. In addition to enjoying the fall colors and views of snowcapped peaks, we will visit historic settlers cabins and are likely to spot the abundant birds and animals of the park as they prepare for winter.
