Black Bear/Horseshoe Loop— Golden Gate Canyon State Park
Constant surprises and interesting twists occur along this trail as it climbs up toward Ralston Roost and then drops through an aspen forest and flower-filled meadows. Backcountry sites offer a close-to-home camping opportunity. A side spur takes you to the remains of John Frazer’s barn and the beautiful meadow where he grew vegetables. This area is close to Denver, yet seems so remote while you are hiking here.
