Notes:  You will park immediately at the second entrance to Old Squaw Pass Road (parking is along Old Squaw Pass Road).  There is a small park (relatively unknown that it is actually here) that you enter the area through called.   There is white vinyl fencing at the trail head you can see easily from Hwy 103.  Find the split through the vinyl fencing for the horse entrance.  Beautiful area, but not really any loop options. Mostly gently sloping, some water crossings. Seefor map and more information.

Trail Ride:  Centennial Cone, Jefferson County Open Space Park.

Near:  North Evergreen, Golden, Lookout Mountain.

Website:  jeffco.us/openspace/openspace_T56_R95.htm  See “Use Schedule” here for hikers/horses & bikers.

Address & Map Link:  North Access with horse trailer parking at 4306 Camino Perdido, Golden.  If you are coming from near downtown Golden, Golden Gate Canyon Road may be the best route.  If you are along the I-70 corridor, Hwy 6 to Co 119 to Douglas Mountain Road is the closest access.

Notes:  Beautiful long loop. Took us 4.5 hours walking 60%, trotting 40%. In 2014 we walked the entire time and it took us 5 hours.  Gentle hills up and down as you circle the cone. Fairly technical in parts.  Boots or shoes are a good idea for the horses.  Alternate use schedule on website for hikers and bikers if you want to avoid bikes just check the use schedule at the website.  With the narrow trail on the side of a hill, avoiding bikes is recommended.  Bring water!!!
