You can see the GPS tracks for this entire hike.

Parking at the Doudy Draw Trailhead off Eldorado Springs Drive, south of Boulder, we hiked south on the Doudy Draw Trail for 1.2 miles. We turned right on the Spring Brook Trail, then left on the Spring Brook Loop South Trail for 1.4 miles. Turning left on the Goshawk Ridge Trail, we took it for 1.2 miles, then left onto the Mickey Mouse Wall climber trail, for 0.4 miles to the train tracks at about 7,000 feet. This was the high point of the hike, which is about 1,400 feet higher than our starting point.

For the return, we took the Goshawk Ridge Trail north to the Fowler Trail, then the Spring Brook North Trail to County Road 67, which we took north to Eldorado Springs Drive, then walked east along the road, 0.6 miles, back to the Doudy Draw Trailhead.

Total distance was 6.8 miles, and total time was 3 hrs, 44 minutes.
