The Golden Egg is part of the Hunting Ground trails in the Dominguez/Escalante National Conservation Area near Grand Junction, Colorado. The trail is labeled as 080A on the BLM DENCA travel map. It begins off of Jack's trail, DENCA 080, where it descends to a bench that it makes a big loop around before climbing back up to the ridge and reconnecting with DENCA 080 about 3 tenths of a mile from where it began. The names that we have applied to the trails in the Hunting Ground area are ones that we dreamed up before the BLM had finished their study and assigned them all numbers.
