Close to Boulder yet separate and serene, in the 5000-acre Heil Valley Ranch the Great Plains meet the southern Rocky Mountains. The pedestrian-only Lichen Trail loops around a rocky, pine-dotted foothill, giving hikers a sampling of the region’s grasslands, shrublands, forests, and canyons. A gentle creek provides a cooling start and end to summer hikes here. The Lichen Loop Trail begins at the west end of the parking lot at the footbridge over a small creek. When the trail forks, follow it to the left for a gentle ascent around the loop. The trail’s namesake shows off as bright green and gold crusts on the rocks and boulders here. Lichen, seemingly dry and lifeless, reigns among the oldest plants in the region, hundreds of years in most cases. Kids are surprised to learn that lichens actually break down rock.
