Foothills Trail Extension Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This route provides an ideal introduction to trail running due to its ease and its relatively short distance. This is the perfect run for a beautiful Boulder morning due to its lack of tree cover.

And because of its proximity to the Hogback Loop route at the same trailhead, it can be prolonged for a little extra mileage when your in the mood. Grade: An extremely easy grade on firm soil, with few rocks. The only downside is a rather narrow trail, so wear long running tights if the grass is wet."
