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!

First couple hundred feet off Marshall Road are muddy, but after that it is good to go.
