    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.

    COVID-19 Alerts: Face coverings are required in Boulder County, including on open space trails and parks. Cover your nose and mouth when you can’t maintain 6 feet of distance from others; wear it around your neck or wrist when no one else is around. Please maintain more than 6 feet of physical distancing whenever possible. If you need to step off the trail to let someone pass, please try to step on a rock or a patch of dirt with no vegetation.
