Boulder Falls

Darby's Top Reasons to Visit Boulder Falls

  1. Moderately challenging, but short hike down stairs to a very cool water fall... I can dip my toes-ies in and (sshhh), sneak a drink.

  2. Boulder Falls is made up of  North Boulder Creek cascading 70 feet to enter Middle Boulder Creek. ("Both very tasty", says Darby)

  3. Visitors take their photographs at "Picture Rock"; a large gray boulder located just next to the road. 

  4. Donated by a rich banker, Charles G. Buckingham, to the City of Boulder for land preservation for "saving this beautiful spot".   

  5. A popular tourist destination since 1914, kiosks share its rich history.                                                                

Difficulty: Moderate, but short. Less than 1/8th mile.

Dogs: Yes, on leash
