South Boulder Creek Access Professional Reviews and Guides

"Boulder Open Space parks preserve roughly 27,000 acres for the enjoyment of the outdoor enthusiast. Much of this open space contains hiking trails, such as the popular Mesa Trail.

For a leisurely 3.7-mile wildflower hike, follow the South Mesa/Big Bluestem/Towhee loop along the base of the Flatirons. Passing through the transition zone, the three-trail loop may turn up nearly 80 wildflower species at peak bloom. Wildflower alert: A cornucopia of nearly 80 wildflowers at peak bloom."

"This hike is as challenging as any in the high country, but Boulder is famous for rugged and tough climbs and has a population that prides itself on fostering mountaineering traditions.

While many locals are drawn to the Chautauqua Park and the diehards rock-climb on the Flatirons or in nearby Eldorado Canyon, fine and strenuous hiking is readily available in south Boulder where, once you have penetrated into one of the steep canyons, there are fewer trail users. Even better, most of the hike is along a heavily shaded trail that your dog will appreciate despite the steep terrain."
