Big Bluestem and South Boulder Creek Trails
In late spring and summer, you will hardly be able to see the big bluestem grass for which a portion of this loop is named because the wildflowers will be too thick. You will find penstemon, lupine, Indian paintbrush, and sego lily along the route, among others; bring along a wildflower guide, or better yet, a botanist friend. It will be educational. If you can peel your eyes away from the flowers, they’ll without doubt be drawn upward to the red ramparts of the Flatirons, which rise to the west of the trail. The path climbs gently toward their base, but veers back east before you enter the forest that darkens their lower slopes.
