Trailhead Name: Anne U White
Trailhead Description: This is a wonderful family hike, near Boulder. We walk up the canyon for a couple of miles, easy climb. It has the fun name "Water-crossing Hike", because you cross the stream about twenty-five times. Nice, very nice, picnic spot at the end. No amenities - but beautiful. I've never seen any bears or lions, but ... Keep your dogs on leash.

You will see many many kinds of birds. In the Spring, be alert for nesting raptors, especially Bald Eagle and Red-tailed Hawk. There will be some trail closures, near the Flatirons, to protect the nesting areas. An alert birder will probably also see Golden Eagle, Peregrine Falcon.
In Boulder Mountain Park(s), you will encounter Poison Ivy. Learn how to identify it! Especially in Gregory Canyon. There is one patch on the Anne U White trail.
