Just a short distance from Boulder lies a magical basin having hundreds of balanced black volcanic boulders standing upon pedestals of crumbling sandstone. Enormous sandstone domes tower over canyons inhabited by falcons and lions and bears (Oh, my). Springs feed riparian forests have fresh young leaves, cool shade, or golden colors depending on the season. Other highlights include groves of stately Ponderosa pines, slot canyons, and petroglyphs, but marvelous solitude is our favorite attribute. We have many routes here, so we customize this hike to ideally suit your interests an abilities.
