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.
4) Views of CU campus.
5) My owner always says the wildflowers are pretty, I just think they smell great.
