Highlight: Boulder Mountain
Boulder Mountain has all the unique features you typically look for in a Central Colorado trail, and while there are no named obstacles, the steep terrain, and narrowness of trail will keep your focus on the road. The trail starts in dense, thick forests and proceeds to climb the north side of Boulder Mountain. The trail follows a narrow roadbed as it switchbacks up the side of the mountain. You will cross a wide avalanche chute on your way toward timberline. Once out of the trees, the views are unimpeded and you will proceed to cross talus slopes on your way to an abandoned mine site. The terrain at the mine site feels as though you are hanging off the side of the mountain and allows you to look down into the Town of Alpine in the Chalk Creek Valley below.
