Here are some of the highlights...

A new trail system extending off of the existing Canyon Loop Trail will allow visitors to explore new territory and will provide diverse experiences including a potential future connection to Fourmile Canyon for mountain bikers and others. The new trail system will double the available trail mileage by adding 4.6 miles of additional trails, thus creating a total of 9.3 miles of multiple use trails throughout Betasso Preserve, one of the highest densities of trails on Boulder County open space properties.


In addition, if an opportunity arises, BCPOS will investigate the feasibility of a potential new trail in the southeast corner of Betasso Preserve that would provide a new link between Boulder Canyon and the Canyon Loop Trail. The goals of this new trail would be to eliminate the need to hike or bike on Boulder Canyon Drive to access Betasso Preserve from the Boulder Canyon Trail and to provide a more sustainable trail
system compared to the existing Canyon Link Trail. A new trail at this location would provide for a safer, easier, and potentially more environmentally sound connection between the City of Boulder and Betasso Preserve.
