Description

This wide and flat trail loops around Coot Lake, and makes a nice start to a longer run at the Boulder Reservoir or a pleasant short outing on its own. The west side of the lake is a protected wetland where you can spot a variety of birds, and the view of of the Flatirons and Longs Peak on a clear day make a picture perfect backdrop.

Flora & Fauna

Opportunity to see many birds such as meadowlarks, red-winged blackbirds, thrushes, red-tailed hawks, ospreys, and bald eagles.
