The Historic Gilpin Tramway graded surface serves as the southern perimeter of the trail system. The Tramway surface is approximately 48” in width, with grades generally under 4%, making this trail accessible to everyone. Walkers, runners, strollers, leashed pets and kids on bikes will all enjoy the 2.7 mile route. The compacted surface and gentle grades also allow accessibility to persons with physical disabilities. The Tramway connects the new Hidden Treasure Trailhead with destinations such as Chase Gulch Waterfall and Town Overlook.

      Great, easy climb with a fun downhill around the other side. Good tree coverage and runs along a stream for a nice cooldown if u do the full loop.
