Good trail for running. There are a few other trails that branch off of the main trail to increase the distance of the trail. Nice views of the mountain while running. Traffic on the trail is pretty light, but there are horses and mountain bikes on the trail. The entire trail is dirt, but is pretty smooth with very few rocks and no tree roots. Note that the bridge over Boulder Creek is officially closed until fall 2017.

Great views of the Indian Peaks from the high prairie, then some wetlands as one descends southwards towards Boulder Creek and surrounding lakes. Best done in the colder months. Note that the bridge over Boulder Creek is officially closed until fall 2017.

Reviewers are confusing this with the East Boulder Trail. The White Rocks Trail however is extremely hilly for nearly 3 miles. Still, fairly pedestrian and good for a large running team as you can run side-by-side on much of it. Can be muddy in the early spring.
