    Help protect Boulder's natural beauty by remembering these Mountain Manners.

    Spring notice: Get muddy! Please stay on the trail even if that means tromping through spring's mud puddles. With higher than usual visitation, this is more important than ever to prevent the destruction of the ecology surrounding our trails.

    Coronavirus (COVID-19) Alerts: Protect people, stay home. If it’s essential to go outside, practice responsible recreation. Maintain more than 6 feet of physical distancing from people, follow face-covering guidelines and avoid unnecessary travel to limit the spread of COVID-19. Please adhere to all regulations and suggested one-way/directional travel for popular open space trails. View City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks closures and cancellations related to COVID-19.
