This is an 8 mile loop.  Starts with a downhill stretch to Eldorado Canyon and River, goes along river for a bit then back uphill  with no shade to Walker Ranch Loop trailhead where there is a bathroom (approach used from Boulder to trail).  The trail then goes across a ridge then back down a shady portion of the trail to a creek.  Then we go up to the Ehel Harrold picnic area (with outhouse) for an early lunch and then back down to the Eldorado Canyon/river where a waterfall is.  Ends with a steep stairsteps up and trail back to car. Elevation varies between 6000 and 7200 feet.  Dogs must be on leash and walk well with other dogs.  Carpool from corner of 72nd and 93 where there is a small dirt parking area although persons with dogs should plan to drive.  Meet at 8:30 from carpool location or 9 am at  Crescent meadows parking lot at trailhead.  Lots of water for dogs , many shady spots.  Walk is about 4 hours.
