Description

Some fields, lots of woods, rocky sections, and lordy! look out for the slime on those creek crossings! This is a pretty neat trail, several climbs that will work your legs little, a lot of twisties to keep you awake, or smack you awake should you doze. A few fast sections, too, just to keep it from being all work. There are two loops marked for different skill levels. Follow RED for the entire Boulder experience; all the hills, rocky descents, dips, and wet creek crossings. Following the BLUE bypasses the harder stuff, mostly friendly enough for the whole family.

A - main loop, begins and ends at trail head - red & blue

B - northeast corner - red & blue

C - north side, west of section B - red only

D - southeast corner, at south end of levee - red only

E - south side (behind Concord Church) - red and blue

Cash Extension - Splits off of C Loop - red

Facilities

• Porta Potty at the trailhead.

  • This park is a great place to ride. We rented a nice tandem bike from Red Star Bicycles. What nice people who run this shop. We really enjoyed meeting them, and they set the bike up perfectly for us!  more »
  • The park is beautiful, very well maintained and the trails are fun. I'm a beginner and the blue trail was a great trail for my first ride. It's got plenty of easy spots mixed in with hills and step....  more »
