South Boulder Creek Trail

Trail Meter: 

Running predominantly north-south through the plains just outside Boulder city limits, this wide crusher-fines trail is a great way to stretch the legs on a Sunday afternoon.  You can grab the trail from Marshall Road to the south, or from the Bobolink Trailhead to the north.   A couple of underpasses allow you to cruise right on underneath South Boulder Road and Highway 36 with safety and ease.  A great trail to take your kid on the Strider or their first set of knobby wheels.

Watch out for cows and cow pies!
