Enjoy These Amazing Boulder Bike Trails!

Screen Shot 2016-08-29 at 1.24.46 PM

 

In and around Boulder, over 50 miles of trails on Open Space and Mountain Parks are designated for use by bicyclists. Please remember that bikes may only be ridden on trails that are posted with the international bicycle symbol. Do not ride on trails that are posted as “no bikes” or that do not have a sign indicating bikes are allowed; bikes are not allowed to ride off-trail.

We all enjoy OSMP in different ways. Expect to encounter other visitors on trails. Be courteous and share the trail so that everyone can have an enjoyable experience. Watch this Trail Etiquette Video from Boulder Mountainbike Alliance and follow the tips below.

Go Take A Hike! A Virtual One On Some Of Boulder’s Most Beloved Trails

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 11.52.55 AM
An image from one of the many virtual hikes along Boulder trails, thanks to Google!

In the summer of 2015 Google partnered with Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) to map some of the city’s trails. OSMP provided information on our trails, along with recommendations for areas to map. Google conducted the mapping for this pilot effort. The city is exploring the possibility that more OSMP trails could be mapped. Here are the trails you can walk virtually:
