Description

The Goldback Springs Trail is in need of some tender loving care. While most of the trails in Dishman Hills Natural Area are well-signed and maintained, this trail has suffered from human impact with stolen signs and maps, graffiti and an abundance of social trails leading to private property and unsafe rock faces.

During the early spring, seasonal water flow can make the trail difficult to navigate. There is also lots of erosion along this particular trail. It is, however, a great jumping-off point for the Deep Ravine Trail, the Eagle Peak Loop, and the Pinecliff Loop.

Gorgeous sunny day. Goldback Loop is tough to stay on because of all the social trails that lure you off the main trail. Beautiful hike as usual. 4.1mi
