Darby’s Favorite Reasons to Love This Hike

  1. Hidden in the small mountain community of Jamestown, north-west of Boulder, this hike isn’t even marked. It is known as CR102J, or James Creek and difficult to find if you don’t know where to look. You’ll enjoy a less crowded hike, compared to all the other Boulder hikes.
