Great trail with neat views from the top. The max elevation is around 5800. Went the day after the October snowstorm so it was pretty slick, but had a great time.

This was our last day hiking in the area and although this is much better than the trails where we live, after hiking in the National Park this was much different. The trail turns weren't labeled that well and a portion of the trail was under construction where they were putting in water or sewage lines. You can definitely make your own routes back in here but I'm sure there is much better hiking in the area than this.

Out for a run? Head to the end of Pearl St.
Quick easy hike/run up to the Red Rocks.
Or a light walk/hike with your partner, great views of Boulder.

I was very fond of this hike. Beautiful rock formations and views, and a lot of little trails to take detours.

I brought my son and daughter along on this one. This easy trail was a great way to get some forest bathing in while enjoying views of Boulder.
