“This fairly easy trail can be linked in combination with a bunch of Boulder Valley Ranch trails.”— Megan W
Starting at the north end at the Neva trailhead, head through the gate just east of the parking lot. Run on flat ground about three-quarters of a mile southwest past a shelter. Left Hand Trail turns east after the shelter and travels a section of smooth trail next to Lefthand Reservoir.
There are a couple of rolling hills before you reach the third bridge in a little over a mile. After the bridge, ascend steeply up a short climb to a gate. After the gate, Left Hand travels due south through several more gates and ends at Boulder Valley Ranch trailhead and parking lot.
