Description
Chimney gulch is a steep, but mostly non-technical, trail connecting Golden and the top of Lookout Mountain.

Ridden as an uphill, the 1100 feet of climbing provides a good workout, and is also a good way to access the top of Apex Trail.

Parking is available at the trailhead on the south side of Hwy 6. Alternately, a tunnel under the highway is available a short bit to the west of the trailhead (couple hundred meters or so) if riding to/from across the Hwy.
