The parking lot here gets full fast.  Especially on nice weekends.  For a harder Galbraith Lollipop with fewer people, see the Nightbird Gulch Lollipop Loop below.  The Cedar Gulch trail is a much more chill way up than Nightbird!

Nightbird Gulch may well be the most technical trail in Golden.  It is steep, rocky and rugged!  You'll either love it or you'll hate.  Give it a try and find out which camp you are in.

This one combines the two routes that connect to the Galbraith Loop.  Its a really great out and back.  If you are feeling it, throw in the Galbraith Loop on your way out, your way back, or both (you are a beast)!
