Kevin F. on Button Rock Preserve: Sleepy Lion T...
Nice low key spot to get out and do something. Fun for the kids, great creek access and rocks to climb on.
This place was pretty cool! My fiance and I found this place from much research on dispersed camping not too far from Boulder. The drive to Bunce School Rd was beautiful and the trail was just as great! We have a 07 Ford Explorer Sport Trac, 2WD and it handled the beginning of the trail with ease. The further we got into the trail, the more steep and rocky it became and we decided to pull over for the night on 105 right before you cross the creek at a designated spot with a fire ring and off trail parking area. We literally car camped- folded down the seats, laid down a pallet, and even set up our mini projector to watch a movie! When we set up came, we didn't see or hear anyone but around 8 am, the rumble of 4 wheelers, ATVs, and 4x4s were everywhere. When we woke up we started to hike around the trail to explore the area on foot. Beautiful views of the forest around you and the valley close by! My phone was dead otherwise I would have pictures to upload...guess that means we have to make another trip out soon before winter arrives! We will definitely be back! Hopefully, we can find a good place to rent 4 wheelers next time for a decent price - any suggestions would be great!
Great trail through a beautiful park of the forest and good parking. To much walking on dirt roads with construction to get to actual trailhead and after trail ended to get back to the car. Came to hike I can walk on a dirt road just about anywhere
This is a beautiful trail with a wide variety of ecosystems. It is a gradual incline with great river and mountain views scattered throughout. There are a few technical sections but nothing too crazy. This is also a great hiking trail for the family. My kids love it!
