A short drive from Boulder, easy parking, a short run, and a truly spectacular summit make this a deservedly popular destination. Relative to it's easy difficulty, there is no more rewarding summit in the county.
This is a great addition to a longer run on the Switzerland Trail
that connects at the start.
From the large parking area and intersection with the Switzerland Trail
, there are many trails going in all directions. This is the only one going east, and steeply uphill. Head up the rocky road and go past a gate that blocks cars. Simply wind around the mountain as the trees disappear and enjoy the views.
Explore the summit area with a bunch of "throne" rock seats built into the western hill and soak in the views!
Flora & Fauna
You can find wild Boulder Raspberries in season right on the side of the trail.
