Mount Galbraith Trail

21992 Golden Gate Canyon Road
Golden, CO 80403

Come for the challenging terrain, stay for the views. Mount Galbraith Park is a hiker-only destination, boasting nearly five miles of steep, rocky trails that reward the hardy with commanding views of Golden, the plains and the Continental Divide. The Mt. Galbraith Loop circles 1.6 miles around the top of the 7,260-foot peak. In addition to the vast and varying landscape, keep your eyes peeled for the elk, bighorn sheep, red-tailed hawks and songbirds that frequent the area. Mount Galbraith is flanked by Clear Creek Canyon and Golden Gate Canyon, which were vital passageways into the Central Rockies for Native Americans and settlers. Miners climbed the mountain to access the western territories during the California gold rush of 1849, as travel was easier along the ridgelines than through dense drainages.
