Gold Camp Rd Trail Split
About 1.5 miles from the Middle trailhead you’ll arrive at an OLD trail sign and a pair of granite towers. The first sign indicates the direction of Columbine Trail. When you turn around, you’ll see the sign for “Gold Camp Road.” Continue in the direction you were walking until you find a second Columbine Trail sign; then continue on this trail to the end. (If you take the Gold Camp Road trail, you’ll reach Gold Camp Rd in about 300 yards. Turn left and follow the road down to where it meets N. Cheyenne Canyon Rd, which will take you to the Upper Columbine Trailhead.) Just before you reach the trail split, you’ll be able to see an excellent view of the Broadmoor Hotel to the east, and a fine example of how trees adapt to growing on a steep hillside.
