Rated: Intermediate to Advanced. A granny gear ascent up 1800+ ft on the Belcher Hill trail which some consider to be a brutish climb of scree and loose debris but with spectacular views of the surrounding Rocky mountains and wildlife. Side trails (Maverick, Mustang, Longhorn, Shorthorn) offer logs, rocks, technical descents.
Directions: Take Colorado Highway 93 north from Golden 1.7 miles to west 56th Avenue. Turn left (west) on Pine Ridge Road and travel about 1 mile to the east parking lot. http://mapq.st/z8Xtow
