There are so many different areas and elevations in Golden Gate, you feel as though you are in more than one park. Multitudes of hiking trails from ultra easy to expert hiker. Easy and abundant places to park. Lakes to fish in, areas to picnic in, many areas where you can have solitude even though the park is filled with... More

Beautiful park. Even if you just want to get away from the city and take a drive in the mountains, and don't care about hiking, go!. The hiking is great, and my 10 year old daughter loved the sights.

However, the bathrooms at Reverends Ridge are abysmal. The cleaning chart on the bathroom door shows they clean once a week or so, and clearly we were at the end of... More

Live on mountain west of the park. A beautiful place and a variety of ways to camp and moderate trails.

We visited here in early November 2016. The weather was still great then and we picked a fantastic day. We hiked the Raccoon trail which is a 2.5 trail loop, rated moderate. It takes you through Panorama Point then back to the Reverend Ridge Campground parking area. We are new to Colorado, and glad we didn't choose a more difficult... More
