Description

This trail is one loop option through Golden Gate Canyon State Park. Expect a variety of terrain from rocky singletrack through denser pine forest to smooth trails winding through alpine meadows. Starting at the Ole Barn Knoll, you'll climb up to Panorama Point on gradually steepening terrain along wider paths. Once past Panaroma Point, you'll be in more dense pines and eventually make your way back down through some meadow areas.
