"Opened in 1997, Hall Ranch is one of Boulder County’s newer trails. As part of the North Foothills Open Space, Hall Ranch has become a favorite among Boulder area mountain bikers and deservedly so. Its smooth and wide singletrack leads mountain bikers through varying terrain of open meadow and higher mixed conifer forests.
Dramatic hogbacks, exposed sandstone granite domes, and distant cliffs are all to be seen by the curious rider. At one point, riders are offered an incredible view of Longs Peak (14,255 feet) and Mount Meeker. A great ride for both the beginner and advanced rider, Hall Ranch offers a short, moderately easy to technical trail system close to Boulder. Terrain: Mostly wide and hard-packed singletrack. There are some rockier sections, as well as some sandy patches, as the trail winds through grasslands, shrublands, woodlands, forests, cliffs, and canyons."
