Group: Denver Mountain Parks Foundation
When: Sunday, August 20, 9 am to 3 pm
, Golden, CO
for a bison-adjacent guided hike along one of Colorado's original hiking trails.
Beaver Brook Trail was constructed by Colorado Mountain Club between 1917 and 1919 and connects Denver’s Genesee Mountain Park with Lookout Mountain above Golden. We’ll complete a 4.1 mile loop that includes significant elevation loss and gain, a handful of creek-crossing, and rocky terrain for a solidly intermediate-level experience. We’ll hike at a casual, conversational speed-- though hikers should be comfortable with uneven terrain, creek crossing, etc.
Participants are invited for a post-hike beer at Denver Beer Co’s Arvada Taproom where we’ll sample our 2017 charity sponsor’s delicious brews. (Denver Beer Co's support in 2017 has made a major positive impact on our programs and community outreach, and we're super excited for this shared hike!) All hikers will receive a ticket for a free beer flight.
