Betasso Preserve

Darby’s Top Reasons to Love this Hike:

1) A mixture of trees and open fields.
2) We saw Albert’s Squirrels and Mule Deer, good thing I was on a leash!


3) Close to Boulder and not very crowded. Go Wednesday or Saturday because there are no bikes allowed those days.


Mule close.
4) Views of CU campus.
