A slightly more challenging section of the East Boulder Trail.

Description

This section of the East Boulder Trail is slightly more challenging, with a fairly steep, but short singletrack descent/climb. It adds just enough challenge to keep the overall East Boulder Trail interesting.

This trail also crosses the Boulder Creek and passes near a couple of large ponds that were once gravel pits and have since been reclaimed. This lower area is quite pretty with the water in the foreground and the front range mountains in the background.

The trail comes out at Valmont Rd, where you can continue across to Teller Farm.

I highly recommend this trail during sunset. When you hit the Gunbarrel Ranch section on the north side, there is beautiful yellow prairie and a bench on the hill to sit and have a PERFECT view of the sunset over Boulder. This trail is not technical at all, but I did it south to north and there was a bit of climbing that made the ride feel worth it. I did have difficulty (not going to tell how I solved it...) when I was trying to pass Boulder Creek. The bridge had collapsed and they won't let anyone pass.. even through the river if you wanted to get wet. This was on 8/7/16 so hopefully they get it fixed soon! Aug 7, 2016
