CMC Boulder Group is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the City of Boulder Open Space program by joining their Trail Challenge. The Boulder Group will be leading trips on all City of Boulder Open Space Trails through 2018. Follow this link for more information about the Trail Challenge and to find a checklist of all the Open Space Trails.

To continue the series, the Boulder Valley Ranch trailhead out and back with little elevation gain. It is a great end of weekend hike.  With luck we'll catch the sunset!

We start at the Boulder Valley Ranch parking lot -

Be sure to bring a headlamp, water, and a snack.  Dress in layers. Be prepared for all types of weather. Light hiking boots or running shoes are appropriate in good weather.  If there is snow, yak tracks, gloves and a hat will be helpful.​

 Park at the Boulder Valley Ranch trailhead. From the intersection of Highway 36 and Broadway in north Boulder, go north 1 mile on 36 and turn right onto Longhorn Road. Follow Longhorn Road 1 mile to the trailhead (the road goes from pavement to dirt halfway through). The parking area is well marked and obvious on the right side of the road.
