Park County Colorado Hiking Trails

Goose Creek Trail #612

Pike & San Isabel National Forest, Cimarron & Comanche National Grasslands, National Forest in Colorado

Available for Hiking & Horseback riding, the 9.4 mile Goose Creek Trail provides access into the southeast portion of the Lost Creek Wilderness. Goose Creek trail winds north and eventually ends in Wigwam Park at a junction with Wigwam Trail. From the trailhead near the parking area follow the trail down to a wooden footbridge across Hankins Creek after which you will reach a trail junction. Goose Creek Trail heads east (right) to Goose Creek (Hankins Pass Trails travel west/left) and follows the creek upstream, crossing over on a large metal footbridge.

Goose Creek Trail soon begins to gain elevation as it rises up away from the creek. After reaching a sign which marks the turn off to the historic buildings and shaft house remnants, Goose Creek Trail begins to gain elevation rapidly before dropping down into Watkins Gulch. The trail then travels up again in a northwesterly direction (general), reaching McCurdy Park Trail junction at a highpoint overlooking the valley. Goose Creek Trail bears right (north) up a saddle east of a granite tower with a distinctive leaning pinnacle before dropping down into Wigwam Park to end at it's intersection with Wigwam Trail.

Primitive Camping and fishing are available along Goose Creek Trail, however because of popularity, legal campsites (at least 100' from water & trail) are scarce.

Goose Creek Trailhead may be reached via FR 211 at the south end from Tarryall Road, near Lake George or from the north end near Deckers.
