Blog: Trail Running

The Now and the Future

Golden is sandwiched between two impressive mountain ranges, so there’s no doubt that amazing Alpine trail running is a “thing...” and only getting better.

The current alpine running options are primarily focused in the Purcell Mountains, to the west of Golden and based from Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.  The resort does not currently permit “uphill traffic” during summer operations on the resort trails for safety reasons (downhill mountain bikers and a grizzly bear refuge) so you can access the alpine with a quick gondola ride.

Golden is recognized as a mountain bike destination with more than 120 kilometers of sweet, flowy, forested singletrack.  It’s no surprise then, that the trail running is also world class.

News Flash:  Trail running on “mountain bike” trails is not only great, but also permitted and highly recommended!
