We’re meeting 1:30pm at Prospect Park. We do have an issue with the maps, so if you can’t find us, it’s likely that. From Google maps, the address is 3862 Youngfield Service Rd, Golden, CO 80401 or 39°46’23.2″N 105°08’32.9″W. You’ll end up under a bridge if using Apple maps! So use 4100 Youngfield St. Wheat Ridge, 80033 for Apple (yes, this is a store on Google maps). Sorry about that folks! Find it once and bookmark it in your map of choice because we’ll be meeting at this park all of November. This park has construction going on, but we’re free to use the trail system + playground – we just have to walk a bit. Use the address above or map below to find us!
Because of construction in the parking lot near the playground, the address above is for what’s technically called “Wheat Ridge Greenbelt Youngfield Entrance” (sexy, no?). But parking is easy here!
This week we’ll head down the Wildlife Trail (to the right of the bridge past West Lake, see map below) and try to ID the winter trees while taking a different route.
This park has both paved + natural paths, water – the creek + multiple lakes, trees to climb, fishing, bird-watching, bathrooms at the trailhead + playground, play structures, + many natural play areas. Come explore with us!
Let’s meet near the parking lot again, and head down the trail. If you’re pretty late, find us! We’ll head straight east down the creek trail toward Tabor Lake, stopping to explore along the way.
This week, please bring:
Outdoor, weather-appropriate clothing
Sunscreen, snacks + drinks for your people
It seems easiest if we use a single park for each month, rather than bouncing around. I am going to spread us out northeast and southwest, then centrally again. My goal is water nearby + a nature play area, whatever else we find is extra. To suggest an alternate park, if you wish, please email me!
