Hike the Horseshoe Trail
Colorado › Horseshoe Trailhead
Added by The Outbound Collective
Hike through aspen groves and open meadows, while following along seasonal streams. Access to backcountry camping, as well.
This intermediate hike in Golden Gate Canyon State Park is an attraction across seasons – in fall the aspens show beautiful colors, while in spring and and summer wildflowers bloom along the trail.
You can also reach three backcountry camping sites via access trails off of Horseshoe. Come early to take advantage of limited parking at the trailhead.
