Burro Trail is in Golden Gate Canyon State Park. It is one of the more challenging hikes in the park and is just a 30 minute drive from Golden and west Denver. This is a favorite hike leading to Windy Peak where you have great 360 degree views of the mountains and the park below.
Burro Trail has areas of pines, small meadows with aspens, wildflowers and rock outcrops at Windy Peak. There are also areas where the trail is rugged with rocks and fairly steep. It’s good to wear sturdy hiking shoes and plan for some places where the trail has loose dirt and rock. The trailhead is located at Bridge Creek – grab a map at the park entrance for reference.
Picnic Spot Recommendations:
We enjoy eating lunch up at Windy Peak or at one of the picnic grounds within the park (there are many).
