Breweries

My personal favorite local brewery. Outstanding beers, great location, and great vibe. You may see horses hitched outside and you will definitely see bikers and hikers galore as they go back and forth from N Table Mountain. Kid friendly and they usually have a food truck and sometimes live music.

A longtime Golden favorite. Located downtown and will require a short drive or an Uber. You can walk here, but it will take about an hour.

A great space that you can walk to! This brewery features a menu with their own food. Be sure to try the bread twists with a marinara dipping sauce. YUM! A great outdoor area is kid friendly and fills up so get there early. There is also another location downtown. PRO TIP- get the wine slushy. White, red, or swirl. (get the swirl).

Hiking/Trail running

One of my favorite local hiking/train running spots. Remember that bikers are welcome here, but they can only bike the gated trails on even days. They can bike the rest of the trails any day. Great views of Golden from the top.

Many great trails of all difficulties and some are in the Red Rocks area.

A 3 block walk from the house, there are many trails here. Not very challenging as hiking goes, but a GREAT place to trail run. Be sure to go to the top of Castle Rock for great views of Golden. You can also take trails here and walk downtown. It is about a 4 mile hike, and be sure to take the Olivine Trail down the mountain. This is a newer trail and switchbacks down the the end of 19th St where you can walk to Washington, make a right, and you are in the heart of downtown Golden.

A short drive, N Table Mountain has more difficult hiking trails and much more terrain than S Table. This trailhead is very close to both Cannonball Brewery and Hollidaily Brewery which offers gluten free beer.

You can reach this trailhead through a neighborhood and park on the street, hiking back to Mt Galbraith. A much more technical rocky trail that is still fun and a great workout.

This is one of my favorite hikes, but it is difficult. Just shy of 1500' elevation, it climbs without much recovery. Great views.
