Flat, mostly gravel trails that loops around several ponds. You can take various loops so you can make your walk as long or short as you like. I went 4 miles while there. The boardwalks are nice on some of the ponds. A couple trails were overgrown. Would probably take the dogs there in the spring or fall, otherwise wouldn't go back.

Great place for outdoor group gatherings like family reunions or team building. I used to play capture the flag here as a kid! I've attempted to correct the map, as the other user noted, it isn't correct.

The location of this place is incorrect on the map here. It's actually north of Valmont right off of 75th street. It's a very easy hike, really I'd call it more of a nature walk. Little to no elevation change, but it's really great for birding. If you look up Walden Ponds on the Boulder County website they actually have a checklist of all the birds that you can see in this area. Great for kids and families.
