Event Description:

Join us for a networking walk, while enjoying the great Golden outdoors!   

Triceratops Trail is a 1.5-mile, gravel hiking trail located one block east of 6th Avenue and 19th Street in Golden, Colorado. The trail winds between large, vertical walls of sandstone in old clay mining pits. The hike takes about an hour round-trip.

 

Along the trail are several interpretive stops highlighting the geology and clay mining as well as dinosaur, bird, mammal, insect, and invertebrate tracks and traces. The site is also famous for palm frond and other leaf and plant impressions left behind when this was a delta-like, wet environment.

This month's Network 'n Nature event is: Triceratops Trail

Triceratops Trail is a 1.5-mile, gravel hiking trail located one block east of 6th Avenue and 19th Street in Golden, Colorado.
 

There are two options for parking at Triceratops Trail:

1. Turn east onto 19th street heading toward Golden from 6th Avenue, then make an immediate right on Jones. That is a paid parking lot (“Jones Lot A”) operated by Colorado School of Mines. The trailhead is at the southwest corner of the lot. 
2. If “Jones Lot A” in 1) is full or inaccessible, look for public street parking or go to Mines Park, which is off of 19th Street just on the west side of 6th Avenue. There is a pedestrian (and bicycle) underpass under 6th Avenue and it’s a short walk to the Triceratops Trail trailhead just off the bike path. (BLUE ARROWS)
