Feinberg said the popular trailheads are often overflowing with vehicles on the weekends, with cars illegally parked along the road.
"I think the parking issues along Doudy Draw are going to be something we need to deal with and talk to the county about," Feinberg said.
Paul Seward lives in the 4100 block of Eldorado Springs Drive, just north of the Doudy Draw trailhead. He said it's not uncommon for up to 60 cars to line the road by his home on any given weekend.
Is this the straw that breaks the camels back? Open Space officials have been making it difficult to provide trails and riding access from Boulder itself so for some the only realistic way to get to these trails is by car and now they say they have a parking problem! Personally for me it is the straw, I publicly supported 1B awhile back but now unless openspace does not change I revoke my support from any more open space tax requests in the future.
What about you, am I missing a bigger picture or something?
