quick workout to wonderous view of flatirons This trail starts in an old part of Boulder with a quick elevation climb to get the heart pumping. Once on the mesa, follow the trail into the trees and around to the left for a short loop. You will be on the Mesa trail for a short while. Notice what selective tree removal has done while you hike. There is a map at the trailhead.

Great hike, we took the path on the right from the trailhead. Uphill climb, not too bad but definitely gets your blood pumping. Pretty muddy from the snowmelt but a lot of lush green plants coming back to life! Overall really great hike, my dog loved it. Saw a mama bear and her cub not far off the trail so make sure you put your dog back on the leash when you get into the thicker woods. Take the Woods Quarry loop once you get up there. There's a little overlook with rocks to sit on, nice spot relax for a few.

This was our first hike this year so we wanted to start with an easier one. This was perfect.

This was more of an out and back than a loop. Pretty views. Lots of dry dirt and loose rock on the way down which made the descent a little difficult and slow. Overall nice woodsy hike.

the beginning of this trail is steep but once you get up the hill it's totally worth it. pretty peaceful. my 4.5 yr old son loved it!!
