Short moderately easy trail with a fun scramble over the rocks to reach May’s point. Breathtaking views of the snow capped peaks and green hills. Trail is narrow, but luckily not crowded yet at 7:30am, even though it was another postcard perfect Boulder morning.

We loved this trail. It is the perfect hike with some incline and declines. The most beautiful view of UC Boulder which was perfect since we were touring the college. We could see the game in the stadium from up top which was so cool. The views were breathtaking and there are wonderful boulders for climbing. Little trails that drop off for privacy and insane views. Bring a hammock and lunch! May point is just breathtaking. The whole trail was amazing. Had so much fun. There is a ranger station and bathrooms in the parking lot which was also convenient.

Great hike with kids. Beautiful views and wildflowers. Saw a mule deer hanging out. Sensory trail at the trailhead to get the kids thinking about their surroundings and how each sense plays a role.

Nice quick trail into the foothills forest from the parking area to a lookout point with great views west of the Rockies. No dogs allowed on this one.
