Walker Ranch Loop (B)

LMC Calendar


This moderately challenging trek near Boulder is a great hiking and mountain biking trail through Walker Ranch Park and El Dorado Canyon State Park. Features include open areas, forests, rock formations and a scenic river. We will go clockwise from the Walker Ranch Parking Access and descend to a canyon with cascading South Boulder Creek. Then we will ascend a series of steep stairs up to the top of a ridge and continue upward to the Crescent Meadows TH. From there we will descend again down to the creek, then work our way back up to the starting point. This B rated hike consists of 8 miles up and down trails with 1,900’ elevation gain and maximum elevation of 7,400’. Fully vaccinated hikers please!
