A great hike to do in the area, is to the top of Terminator 2(T2). The best part is the Gondola gets you to the top of the mountain. So the grunt work is basically done. After that, it is a nice ridge walk into the opening of SuperBowl(15 minutes). The next section is having to follow more or less a goat trail for about another 20 minutes to the top of the mountain. It is a trail that the Resort should work on but so far haven't unfortunately because it truly is a fabulous spot at the top. There are a few tricky sections where the rock is loose and you have to be a little extra careful with footing, but nothing serious. There are no big drops or anything like that. If you miss a step, you may slide a bit. Walking sticks are really helpful. The views from the top are outstanding looking in every direction. From the top of the mountain you can actually hike all the way to the canyon and down into Nicholson which is just south of Golden. But here is video of our hike. Hope you like it. Well worth it.
