Hike the Blue Grouse Trail
Colorado › Blue Grouse Trailhead
Added by The Outbound Collective
Hike to mountain views on Blue Grouse Trail, where wildlife and wildflower sightings are common. Great for the whole family.
This is an easy trail through Golden Gate Canyon Park, particularly beautiful in the fall and during wildflower season. You have the option to mountain bike here, as well.
The trail ends at 0.7 miles, where it meets with Mule Deer Trail. Continue on this trail for a 7.4 mile loop if you're interested in a longer hike. You can also head to the nearby Kriley Pond for fishing or hanging by the water.
