Easy to moderate hike. I was planning on making the hike longer by adding the Boy Scout Trail but it does not allow dogs, it is a Habitat Conservation Area. Instead I added in the Tenderfoot Trail (out and back). Wonderful short hike for the morning and to start getting back into shape for the season. I highly recommend hiking early morning for this area. I was off the trail by 9:30 am and the trails and parking lots were packed.

Lovely trail, but the mosquitos are aggressive. There were times when I had more than 10 swarming around me!


Not wheelchair friendly at all.

Perfect for my two kids 4 & 6! Wildflowers, enough shade from trees along the trail, beautiful views

dog heaven. good run around for my pup. but he see the lake and wants to swim but cant

Good place for a nice stroll in the evening or after work.

Great hike for the dogs- lots of shady spots and beautiful views.

This is a nice path to take my toddler. The gravel path along the creek still allows for an all terrain stroller easily. There are nice views through the trees.

nice view and dog walk

Took UTE to Boy Scout ... love this area !!

A great trail with good views. Only problem I had was a large rattlesnake who startled me by rattling while laying almost invisible on the trail. Definitely got my attention. Was sunning itself on the bare trail. I gingerly walked wide around it.

Great trail! Has a beautiful view of the flatirons and a creek running along the entire trail for your dogs to cool off on a hot day. They have trash stations through out the trail so you’re not carrying poop bags for too long. Very dog friendly!! My only complaint is that this parking lot is pretty small and space fills up quick. I go in the middle of the day through the week. If there’s no space there’s always dry creek trail a few minutes up the road!

Very sweet easy walking trail, some incredible cottonwoods along the path. Perfect place to just do a short jaunt or also could wander a good while. Pretty view of front range beyond the lake was where I had to turn back but I intend to go back soon. :)
FYI Picnic bench at trailhead and trash bins but no other amenities.

Lovely open areas

Went on thanksgiving and saw a dozen people out enjoying nature. Off leash dogs are allowed with Boulder yellow tag. You have to go up a steep path if you want to walk by the reservoir.

Simple flat trail along a creek. Near busy roads so you can hear car noise, but a pretty nice easy getaway for a nearly in-town walk.

Very well maintained easy trail. As we share the trail with bikes at certain points, it would be really helpful if a bicyclist can yell heads-up so that we can get out of its way.

Was a very nice level walk with beautiful views.

Beautiful local trail, easily accessible. You're not hiking in the mountains, but you have pretty views of a few.

Great wide open paths along the creek with beautiful openings in the trees along the water revealing flatirons in the background.

Busy with lots of off-leash dogs running around but really pretty walk around some open space next to the Baseline Reservoir.

Easy breezy beautiful stroll. Bring the pup!

This is a great hike to do with the kiddos. Views of the flatirons, a flat, paved path, places to play along the creek.

Loved it here! So many different trails to explore. Peaceful and beautiful.
