    Things You Can Do Outside in Boulder

    The best thing you can do now is stay at home. However, if you are going outside for physical exercise or to clear your head, here are some suggestions on how to do so while keeping yourself and others safe. Don't hesitate to call us (Boulder's official tourism office) if you need further information, have questions about the status of things in Boulder or need assistance: 303-442-2911.

    Hiking and Nature Walks

    Peace and optimism are available on 150 miles of trails in Boulder. Go for a hike on dozens of trails including these easy nature outings. Make sure to choose one that is not crowded, even if that involves additional driving or a change of plans. Here's how to get some individual exercise while still keeping yourself and others safe.

    More trails are available on Boulder County lands. Here are a few ideas for less-popular places to explore:

    Important reminders:

    • Maintain at least six feet of distance between yourself and others. 
    • If you need to pass someone on the trail, communicate with them to allow the recommended six feet of distance.
    • If you're feeling ill, absolutely do not visit open space. 
    • If parking is full, move on to another park or trailhead.
    • Don't organize large group gatherings. The CDC recommends activities done alone or with people that live in your home.
    • Do not take risks. Keep rangers, deputies, and other first responders safe. ​
