Scrambling

Note: This trailhead is currently closed for construction, but a short detour is available. For more information, please see https://www.jeffco.us/1440/Windy-Saddle-Park Beaver Brook trail starts in Golden . Looking down onto Clear Creek, it moves through north forested slopes. After beautiful vistas, it drops into Beaver Brook itself before climbing out to Chief Hosa. The trail on the west side drops down into Beaver Brook and then climbs back out to the top of a 7800' peak. There is a fair amount of wind on that side of the mountain. The east side, if you start at Windy Gap, is fairly level although there are scrambles and scree piles to climb over.

Was sole person in lot at 9am, 12/19 (Thursday). Microspikes are a must - majority of trail is snow pack and ice. I went about 4.15 miles before turning back (8.4 total miles). Got back to parking lot around 12:30pm, passed two folks near trailhead. Great day.

Great morning hike. Three of us started at 8am. It was icy so our Micro Spikes made it great. On the way back at the lig bridge, we were completely in the clouds. It was snowing and peaceful with crunching sounds of our spikes. One of those mornings you remember, and why we get up in the morning for.

It was pretty icy in places but a very fun hike. Definitely challenged my fear of heights as some of the trail had a steep slope next to it.

I did 2 miles on here without spikes or poles, not recommended. Ice was slick throughout a good portion of it.

Didn’t do all of it, but overall very enjoyable. Icy after it snows, so micro spikes and poles recommended

Snowy and icy, with deeper snow further on. Not a problem with microspikes and poles.

MOUNTAIN LION SPOTTED! One of my favorite trails close by Denver and it has some beautiful overlooks. I spotted a mountain lion on the trail between mile marker 2.5-3. Be cautious and prepared for all kinds of animals out there. There was also signs for black bear activity in the area on one of the nearby trails

This is my favorite trail because of the diversity. There are meadows, quiet needle-covered sections through the trees, multiple brook crossings, rock slides to scramble, rocks that have to be climbed over, desert-like portions, and many wonderful overlooks with great views. Because Windy Saddle entrance is closed, we parked at the Buffalo Bill Museum on Lookout Mountain and hiked this as an end-to-end (rather than an out and back as stated in the description), and it was 11.01 from vehicle to vehicle. The sections that don't see a lot of traffic are narrow and overgrown, but that just adds to the appeal. This trail is very rocky for a lot of it, and toward the end, there is one long, VERY rocky, VERY steep section, with a long climb out to the far trail head, but the scenery along the brook is amazing. There were still flowers, even this late in the year, and we heard birds singing and a woodpecker. We saw a deer, squirrels, chipmunks, and a lot of fish. I posted a picture of the elevation graph from our hike so you can see where the long descent is situated.
