The recreation opportunities in the Boulder Mountain Parks and Opens Space vary from facility to facility. Many trails receive a very high volume of traffic and therefore are open only to foot traffic. When using the trails within the Boulder Parks system please stay on the trail and follow use restrictions to minimize impact.
Hiking and picnicking are the most popular activities for users of the Mountain Parks system. The Open Space facilities allow horseback riding, mountain biking, picnicking and fishing. Many of these facilities are wheelchair accessible.
