Fool’s Gold starts from the Half Nelson Parking Lot and ends at the Darwin’s Parking Lot and the start of the Panda Climb. This trail is good for riders of all abilities and is a good way to connect into Another Man’s Gold down to Darwin’s Bridge. This trail was built and funded by Dream Wizards with lots of volunteer help.
