Located in an area of spectacular natural beauty, Golden is where the mountains meet the plains just 15 miles west of Denver. The area offers outstanding outdoor recreation with biking, hiking and kayaking all available right in town.

There’s a Regional Transportation District (RTD) light rail line (W) that runs from Denver to Jefferson County Government Center, beware trains that say ‘Golden’ on the front, they will drop you here. To get to Downtown Golden, transfer a few stops earlier at Oak station onto the 16 bus.
