I was looking through old blog posts and realized that I had yet to write a post on favourite family hikes near Golden even though it’s one of our main ‘go to’ family activities – especially during the in-between seasons. So here it is, a post on some favourite ‘family-friendly’ hiking options. I’ve picked three hikes -- all close by and all relatively short (so they work well for younger kids and won’t threaten to take up the whole day).
Blog: Fall Activities
Fall in Golden BC is for people who want to feel cozy and at home visiting a small mountain town. It’s the season where you probably get to feel most like a local. As the summer tourist season comes trickling to an end and the winter folks have yet to arrive, there’s just that perfect little window of time where the town slows down and gets kind of quiet – I think of it as Golden’s meditative season.
Ahhhhh, what’s better than crisp cold mornings and watching the leaves turn from various shades of green to reds and oranges. The correct answer is, nothing of course! It’s the time of year when people praise pumpkins and switch their shorts for sweaters. For me, it is my absolute favourite time of year! Especially here in the mountains, you couldn’t get it any better.
