Boulder County Scenic Farm Drive

Looking for a pretty drive that rolls along past a number of farms with vistas of the Rockies in the background? Follow the suggested highlighted route on the map. Without stops, it will probably take you about 60 minutes. With stops, maybe 2 1/2 hours. Food is available along the route in Hygiene and Lyons. Surprises can be found at the honor-system farm stands, so bring some cash. And remember, some of the food on your restaurant table tonight may be from these farms!

Drive Wisely

It's best to download a map before you leave in case you go into areas with no cell coverage. And if you need to take a moment to enjoy the scenery or consult your map, pull over in a safe, out-of-the-way spot.
