Afoot & Afield: Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins, and Rocky Mountain National Park
by Alan Apt and Kay Turnbaugh (Wilderness Press)
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.
Trail closed. Major construction on nearby roads Wagonwheel/Pinto.
Anne U. White Trail is a great trail for a quick jaunt through the hills.
The profile for this trail indicates that it is okay for children, but I am not so sure I can endorse that. We took our children (ages 1 and 3), which proved to be a difficult task within the first 5 minutes of the hike. We encountered others that were in a similar situation with kids that appeared to be ~5 years old.
Overall, a good trail for the novice. There are no technical areas. There are, however, several sections that cross through the riverbed (both wet and dry).
Parking is extremely limited (only 4 to 5 parking spaces); however, there are folks who parked on the main street.
It's ok for a short trail run, but way to short. The directions are actually wrong. Once you turn left at Wagonwheel Gap Rd you want to make your second left, which is Pinto Dr. There is a small parking area at the end of the road and that is the beginning of the trail. It's very short and totally surrounded by private property. There is a little water during wetter times for dogs (leashed only :( alas, no fun for them).
