Description

Prospect Hill Road (GH 38) is an east to west road running the ridgeline in the Golden Horseshoe. It has been graded for logging operations to begin in 2014.

While not an especially good ride, the road does provide a vital link to a variety of trails within the Golden Horseshoe; including Extension Mill Road, Prospect Trail, Golden Gate Loop, and Side Door, making numerous loop options viable.

The road begins just after the pavement ends in the Western Sky Ranch Subdivision, east of the Western Sky and Chantilly Trail intersection, and ends in Lincoln Meadow at Rich Gulch (GH 62). The sister trail extending east from the meadow to the top of Humbug Hill is Lincoln Park Road (GH 66).

Combined, these two roads provide the backbone of the Golden Horseshoe trail network. - Welcome to the Forest of Confusion!
