Description

This section of the East Boulder Trail extends to the west from the White Rocks trailhead through rolling hills of the grassland ecosystem. The western terminus is at the Gunbarrel Trailhead at the intersection of Boulderado and Cambridge in the Heatherwood neighborhood.

As the highest portion of the East Boulder Trail and with limited trees obscuring your view, this section has some of the best Front Range views anywhere.

Flora & Fauna

The White Rocks Nature Preserve supports a diverse array of animal. Among them are raptors, waterfowl, songbirds, white-tail deer, bats, coyotes, foxes, snapping turtles, and snakes.
