Description: Some of the famous canyons, mountains, and sites we will pass include: Green Mountain, Bear Peak, South Boulder Peak, Skunk Canyon, NCAR, Mallory Cave, Fern Canyon, and Shadow Canyon. The Mesa Trail, Boulder’s main north-south trail artery, is one of Boulders best hikes, tracing a lengthy section of its famous Flatirons, Front Range Foothills, and City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks. We begin at either the Mesa at either Boulder Chautauqua Park (north) trailheads, or near the mouth of Eldorado Canyon (south) and hike 6.7 miles one-way beneath more than 1000 large, sandstone formations called flatirons. The terrain is rolling and varied, but mainly through sparse forest, and grassy hillsides with views to the open plains of the east, and Boulder’s three main peak and flatiron formations that sit on their shoulders to the west.
Itinerary: We depart from, and end at your hotel or a central meeting spot. Our brief 5-10 minute trip to the trailhead keeps non-hiking travel time to a minimum. However, during the drive, we will cover vital safety, hiking considerations, and local natural history. After arriving at the trailhead, we head off for a 3hr 30min great guided hiking tour that is 6.7-miles in length and includes 1650’ of elevation gain. At the completion, we will rejoice in our memorable experience together.
