“A dirt road from Nederland to the old ghost town of Caribou.”— Alan Doak
A few ruins remain of the original town, most notably the foundations of the Sherman House hotel, the Assay Office, and a couple of cabins. During fall, Caribou Road is a good way to enjoy the changing Aspens.
From Caribou, there are multiple choices of where to go from there. Descending Caribou Flats makes a good loop back to town.
Convenient parking is available at the RTD park and ride. Better yet, catch the bus from the Boulder station (bikes allowed on rack and undercarriage), link up a bunch of trails, and take your pick of multiple routes back to Boulder.
