The Golden Cliffs in Colorado have been preserved by the Access Fund since 1994 and it has been opened for recreational activities for visitors, locals, and tourists alike, making it one of the most famous and widely visited travel and hiking destinations in the state. In fact, it has been estimated that an average of 30,000 or more visitors come by to hike and observe by the Golden Cliffs on a yearly basis.
The Golden Cliffs mountain ranges feature a well visited and traversed trail called the Golden Cliffs Trail which is a 3.5 mile long journey, lined with gorgeous wildflowers, sky touching trees, and shrubbery and grass as green as any you will ever have seen. Whether you are a nature enthusiast who likes to hear the sounds of the wild and view the sites that are largely untouched, or an active individual who likes to hike up a hundred trails, the Golden Cliffs trail will be a hefty and worthwhile addition to the list.
The Golden Cliffs mountains are actually a part of the Front Range of Colorado, a series of heights in the state that are frequently visited for the jaw dropping nature sites they harbor within their crevices. The wildlife at the Front Range is largely divided into three ecosystems, including the grassland prairie, pinyon-ponderosa woodlands, and the montane. To sum it up, you will find a wide variety of animals up the hills, including the likes of rabbits, prairie dogs, badgers, bobcats, mule deer, elk, foxes, coyotes, and black bears.
