Lubahn Trail - South Table Mountain
The Lubahn Trail was acquired by Jefferson County Open Space and the City of
Golden in 2000, and deeded to the City. The existing trail was built in the mid
1960's by Professor George Lubahn, a Colorado School of Mines geology professor.
It had fallen into disrepair, especially by users who felt the need to cut
across the numerous switchbacks. (Please don't do this! It causes severe erosion
and degradation of the trail.) Susan Rhea coordinated trail repair and new
construction to connect the Lubahn section with a social trail that had
developed to the east, thus making a loop trail entirely on City of Golden Open
Space lands. (There are markers on the trail that let you know when you are
leaving public property.)
Volunteers first made several repairs to the Lubahn Trail on
September 15, 2001.
