Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Waterton Canyon serves as a trailhead for the 475-mile-long Colorado Trail. This is a long walk south to the Durango area, yet Waterton Canyon allows hikers to walk as far as they please and turn around.

The featured hike travels 4 miles into the canyon as it follows the South Platte River into the mountains. This user-friendly hike is an enjoyable outing."

HIked a strenuous, bushwhacking hike to Goat Mountain out of Waterton Canyon. Highly recommend this trail, if you can find the start of it.

For a beginner this trail has it all - scenery, wildlife and little or no hard riding. I contacted Trails.com to inquire about beginner trails and they turned me on to this - what a gem - the farther up the canyon the more beautiful it gets. If you are in Denver - you have to get out here and experience this ride.
