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.

Great bike ride!! Totally recommend.

There are some nice food at the beginning. Bike riding it’s an OK trail.

Everything I read about this trail online said dogs were permitted. But we discovered dogs are not permitted. Being that I'm still recovering from hip surgery, I found the trail hard. It was uneven. Rabbit Mountain and snowshoeing at Eldora were easier.

Nice long trail with some beautiful mountain views. Many signs posted stating no dogs, but unfortunately looks like locals still take their dogs on walks there (we saw two, one off leash). It’s a shame, as it also passes a raptor breeding area. Hopefully more people will respect the rules/wildlife in the future! Trail is heavily rutted, so can be muddy after snow. We parked at white rocks trailhead.

We hiked this from 95th. Somewhat flat and boring but constant view of the mountains. Almost right in between 95th and 75th is an elevated rock ledge with a fantastic view of Boulder below. May try a night hike from 75th to take in the lights.

Beautiful trail however this trail doesn’t allow dogs on the whole trail. Dogs are only allowed on the gunbarrel loop section that’s more north. Went with my three dogs and had to turn back to do Teller Farms instead.

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.

Great for walking and running.

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.
