You can pick up this trail at any point, and there are a few parking lots along the way. Walking southwest, you can see the Boulder Flatirons for the majority of the time. There is a creek along the path at points, as well as a small lake. This is a great easy hike for those new to hiking or perhaps going on or after a date. Great overall!

Nice connection trail between Boulder and Longmont. Trails follow along open space and through some residential areas in Niwot and Gunbarrel. Follow trail along 119 for a bit until you get up to longmont. Follow trail south past Twin Lakes to take you into north Boulder. Lots of birds and prairie dogs along the way and have seen coyote and deer as well. Easy to bike or to walk/trail run.
