This is an easy 1.8 mile hike that runs directly through the heart of Golden. Much of the path is both paved and shaded and is an easy beautiful walk for families with kids.
The Clear Creek Trail is an 18-mile trail that connects with the South Platte River Trail. You can ride all the way from Denver to Golden, a fun, western town that was Colorado’s first capital city. Starting just north of where I-76 passes over the South Platte River, this long, paved trail parallels Clear Creek. It passes through neighborhoods, industrial areas, parks and greenways along the way. Among them are Lowell Ponds State Wildlife Area, Anderson Park, the giant Coors Brewery and North Table Mountain Park. As a foothills ride, the elevation rises towards Golden and the mountains and foothill buttes come into view. Highlights Golden: A quaint western town and home to the Colorado School of Mines as well as the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Golden was Colorado's first capital city. There are plenty of bike shops, outdoor stores and more in the city. Along its main street, Washington Avenue, you’ll still walk under covered walkways and on plank board sidewalks as you find plenty of restaurants and cafes with outdoor patios, ice cream shops and local breweries. Traveling a little farther up Clear Creek, you’ll find the Golden History Park and interpretive site, a park showing Golden’s pioneering and mining history. It’s paralleled by an award-winning whitewater park in Clear Creek. Coors Brewery: The largest single-site brewery in the world and the only place that’s made Coors’ beers is just east of Golden’s downtown. Visitors can stop in for a tour and tastes. Colorado Railroad Museum : The largest railroad museum in the state, it has more than 50 locomotives and train cars celebrating the vehicles and narrow-gauge railroads that helped make and transform Colorado and Golden. The museum hosts family-friendly events and train rides throughout the year. American Mountaineering Center: The Bradford Washburn American Mountaineering Center houses the American Mountaineering Museum—the only U.S. museum dedicated to mountaineering. It celebrates the history of mountaineering and the science and arts inspired by mountaineering. It also explores climate science and mountain cultures around the world. North Table Mountain, South Table Mountain, Green Mountain: The buttes and mountains surrounding Golden make it a gateway to more wild adventures. Each features hiking and some challenging mountain biking trails, offering a chance to immerse yourself in the landscape, plus sweeping views of the Rockies and the Denver metro area. Lookout Mountain and the Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave : West of Golden is one of Colorado’s most iconic road biking climbs, the Lariat Loop on Lookout Mountain. This calf-killing climb winds up the face of Lookout Mountain, passes the giant, illuminated “M” on the mountain—placed by Colorado School of Mines students—and eventually ends up at the Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave, the final resting place of the legendary showman.
