Sometimes you choose where to hike based on desired trail characteristics, and other times you choose a trail because of where it will take you. This page is for the latter case: browse destinations on the map above or in the list below, and from there you can choose a route.
Around Boulder, the trail network is so dense that there is an infinite number of arbitrary route variations that will bring you to an endpoint. I have tried to narrow down the choices while still covering all the use cases I can think of.
I am always improving this section with new destinations and new routes as I try them out. So check back often to see what is new.
Please feel free to contact me with questions or to ask for recommendations. I have hiked a lot more trails in a lot more places than I have documented on this website. Just tell me a little bit about where you are looking to hike, and we will go from there.
