“GH 41 - A useful connector within the Golden Horseshoe and an excellent fall ride.”
— Don L. on Jun 12, 2014
DescriptionProspect Trail (GH 41) begins on Gold Run Road and ends at Prospect Road (GH 38) in the western portion of the Golden Horseshoe (GH). It is a good connector between the Highland's Flume Trails and the French Gulch Trails.
The trail is south facing, making it a good early and late season option. There are numerous aspen along the trail which makes it an excellent choice for late season riding.
This description includes a short section of singletrack near the bottom of Gold Run Road that can be used as an alternative to the road.
Begin on Gold Run Road and look for a singletrack on the left side of the road. Take the singletrack and climb through a switchback back to Gold Run Road. Take a left on the road and take the first doubletrack on the right side of the road.
The trail passes through 4 switchbacks then straightens. Pass a garage and home after 1/2 mile. Shortly after this home the trail tops out, descends briefly and begins to climb again.
After a mile pass Side Door on the right. Shortly after this intersection the trail levels off and after another 1/2 mile ends at Prospect Gulch Road. The intersection is marked with a post.
