Mesa Valley Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"This fine route just south of Boulder, popular with many local trail runners, is perhaps the best run in the Boulder area. Though there are a number of trail junctions, the route becomes obvious after a few repetitions.

Grade: A moderate climb from the trailhead and continuing for 2.5 miles. The trail is wide and smooth for the first two miles, gradually narrowing and including steps and embedded rocks. The downhill sections on the second half of the run are generally smoother."

"You can access the Mesa Trail from the south end and travel north to see some of the
most spectacular views of the Flatirons rock formations. It is a winding, somewhat steep trail initially but then mellows and rolls along."

Great trail, beautiful scenery. We only hiked up about 45 min, but it was a pretty steady uphill. Bring a camera! The gravely path was rough on my dogs feet so either leave your pup at home or get some booties.
