Starting from the Golden Gate Canyon State Park Visitor Center, this 3mi. circular hiking trail has great views of nearby Treamont Mountain, as you hike your way through the park's picturesque aspen forests.
Follow the Burro Trail to the stunning 12,000ft. Windy Peak. You can continue on the trail without climbing the mountain, or follow the path up the slope and enjoy the breathtaking views from the summit.
Suitable for hikers, mountain bikers, and horses, the 2.5mi. Racoon Trail takes you through dense forest, an area which is particularly colorful in the fall. Make sure you take the slight detour to Panorama Point which, as the name suggests, has a great view of the Continental Divide.
