"The Walker Ranch Loop trail is the longest trail in Boulder County’s Walker Ranch Open Space, which has 3,616 acres of meadows, mountainous terrain, and riparian habitat, with South Boulder Creek ?owing through its southern sections. It’s a beautiful setting with excellent trails for hikers, anglers, and other recreationists.
On hot days, you can dip your feet into the cool, sparkling waters of the creek, picnic along its rocky banks, or walk amongst wild?owers, taking in views of the Indian Peaks to
the west and the Plains to the east. The Loop trail winds in and out of forest, along the creek, and up and down ridges to provide a hike that is full of variety and a nice level of physical challenge. You won’t be bored!"
