Overview
Gold Dust Trail #653 is a 8.11 mile one way hike with 1,908 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 57 miles west-southwest of Denver Colorado. August and July are the best months to enjoy this hike.


Gold Dust Trail provides access to Boreas Pass via the old Boreas Pass Wagon Road, which it connects to after crossing FDR 406. Much of the northern portion of the trail follows an old flume that diverted water from North Tarryall Creek and its tributaries to mining operations located in the upper Tarryall Drainage. This portion of the trail is excellent for snowshoers and cross country skiers.
