Gold Point Trail has only one trailhead, so you'll be backcountry hiking it in and back out. Gold Point Trail has a total elevation difference of 2,706 feet which is higher than average. This trek shouldn't take more than 5 hours, but you never know stuff could go wrong and you could get stuck so be prepared for that. This hiking trail goes through some very different elevations, and that means that some parts of the hiking trail could be very different from other parts of it. With its 5.8 miles of walking distance it's a mid length backcountry trek. This is not a very long trail but it's always splendid to bring some emergency supplies, you never know what could happen. This neighborhood does get very dry sometimes, so make sure you check current conditions and fire restrictions with local forest authorities before you head out.
