Argos Trail & Magic Mountain Trail Loop Reviews

We did this hike in late October on a Saturday morning. It was only about a 15min. drive from Denver, and there was plenty of parking in the lot - even on a Saturday! The hike had a nice incline at the start, but it doesn't last too long - the perfect warm up. This loop takes you up the side of the hill (great views of the greater Denver/Golden area) and then down into a small gully. When we were there the trees still had some color and the way down had plenty to see! Definitely be aware of the hiking vs. biking days (hiking is allowed on odd numbered days and biking is allowed on even numbered days). Dogs are allowed! Highly recommend for a quick hike! A great way to get out on a trail & still have a ton of time in your day.
