Description

The Pot-o-Gold trail is a fantastic hiking route beginning at the end of Double Rainbow Trail and climbing all the way to the upper Rainbow Trail via a never-ending series of switchbacks. The hiking can be slightly steep at times, but generally, the grades are all quite moderate, as the trail was designed to be climbable on a mountain bike. Since Pot-o-Gold is bike-legal, you might encounter downhill mountain bike traffic, but the amount of downhill traffic on this trail is only a fraction of the traffic found on Gutz.
