  • Golden Canyone is an easy hike and close to furnase creek visitor center. You can reach the entry point on paved road, park and start walking in. We did part of the trail - about 1.5 miles with kids. Everybody enjoyed the colorful rock formations which looked liked stacked at at an angle and pointing to sky. It's an amazing trail and mesmerizes you with nature's enormity.
