After several years of good service, the sheriff Jack is transferred to a quiet frontier town by his superior. However, as soon as he arrives, a series of disrupting events quickly bring him to a new investigation. Jack has to follow the leads and search the vast expanses of the old west, meeting colorful characters while trying to uncover a hidden conspiracy.

Like Romance of Rome by the same developer, Golden Trails is a hybrid title combining gameplay elements of the adventure and hidden object genres with simple puzzles tailored for the casual audience. Most of the time, the main objective is to find all the items displayed at the bottom of the screen, on locations cluttered with assorted paraphernalia scattered around the scenery. Some of the items are concealed behind other objects or inside containers, that have to be moved out of the way or opened to reveal them.

Some of the items are stored in the inventory at the bottom-right, from where they have to be dragged and dropped on logical places to perform an action or complete a task, usually giving access to the last object required to finish the chapter. The hint button shows the position of one of the required items, but has a limited number of uses. Desperadoes randomly appear on each location, giving the player a chance to earn extra hints by shooting them.

Two recurring mini-games appear between chapters, both having to be completed within one minute. In the first one, some of the objects collected have to be put inside their outlines on comic book panels to activate them. The last one is a shooting gallery with bandits appearing every few seconds.
