Anne U White Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Proximity to Boulder and a pleasant arroyo environment make this a Boulder favorite for casual hikers and dog lovers. It features a delightful riparian area and rock gardens. Torrential rains and flooding closed this trail in 2013. The trail will be rebuilt, and as of press time, the planned reopening was tentatively scheduled for late 2015."
--Alan Apt and Kay Turnbaugh, Afoot & Afield: Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins, and Rocky Mountain National Park (Wilderness Press).
"This breathtakingly beautiful run is situated along Four Mile Creek. Although there are no views of the surrounding area, the towering canyon walls provide not only a cool and refreshing place to run, but a home to an abundant variety of Colorado wildflowers to enjoy as you make you way along the trail. Grade: An average five degree angle of ascent over generally well-maintained trail. There is some sandy trail surface, as well as occasional embedded rocks."
--Steven Bragg, Run The Rockies: Classic Trail Runs in Colorado's Front Range (Colorado Mountain Club Press).
"The playful gurgle of Fourmile Canyon Creek greets visitors at their first steps into Boulder’s secluded riparian corridor. Kids love stopping at trailside shaded pools, many edged by boulders seemingly arranged as chairs for their adult companions. The near-to-town Anne U. White Trail follows a narrow, wooded canyon, preserved from development thanks to the work led by Ann Underhill White in the 1980s. During summer weekends, plan to hike this popular trail in the early morning or evening hours."
