Mount Galbraith Park
Mount Galbraith is a hidden gem located just west of Golden. The park consists of a loop around the summit of Mt. Galbraith, and two routes to get up to the loop. The Nightbird Gulch trail is the "secret way" accessed via a neighborhood. The Cedar Gulch Trail is slightly more popular and leaves from a trailhead with the typical amenities. Either way it's about a 5 mi trip and a terrific hike. The views north from the loop trail are fantastic, well worth the effort.
