White Ranch Park: Belcher Hill Trail
Belcher Hill is a small part of the 19.7 miles of trails that make up White Ranch Park. It is a long, rocky, and very steep trail with great views. White Ranch Park was first settled in 1865 by immigrants James and Mary Bond after their son was killed under their wagon wheel en route to California. In 1913, Paul and Anna Lee White purchased part of the land and operated a cattle ranch until 1969. Anna Lee White gave the land to Jefferson County Open Space and dedicated White Ranch Park to the memory of Paul White in 1975. You face an elevation gain of 1,800 feet on this trail; don’t let its beginning fool you. Mountainbiking bloggers comment that this trail is “one of the best for quad and lung burners” or “long, busting climbs that will make you want to puke!”
