General Information


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.

Description: A canyon hike, with lots of shade. Nice when the day is hot. We call it the "Water-crossing Hike", because you cross the stream about twenty-five times (one way). Nice wildflowers and nice sound of running water. Keep your dog on leash, you WILL see rangers. I have not seen bears or lions, but ... A great family hike.
