Downtown Golden Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A 1-mile walk in downtown Golden is a very condensed version of several walks in Denver: creekside paths, historical museums and other buildings, art galleries, shops, restaurants, and parks. Officially founded in 1859 by gold-seeking miners, Golden’s history is very similar to that of Denver, and for five years Golden City was the capital of the Territory of Colorado until 1867.

Of course there are differences, and the most noticeable is that Golden sits at the base of the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and is surrounded by flattop mesas with Clear Creek running through the town. Since the downtown’s revitalization in the 1990s, the town has become a real draw for locals and tourists wanting a mountainesque day trip without the drive into the mountains."
