Evening Hike On Boulder Open Space

Julie and I took an evening hike at Teller Farm Trailhead in Boulder.  There is plenty to explore here.  We watched birds explode out of tall grass as we passed by, saw a Heron cruise over a field and wondered what might live around the lake.  We also found ourselves stuck while a herd of cows used a gate to move from one field to another.

Boulder Open Space offers grand vistas

Where Is Teller Farm Trailhead?

The city open space is accessed along Arapahoe between 76th and  95th.  Drive down a dirt and gravel road to an ample parking area. We saw what looked like bathrooms and some picnic tables, but were focused on a hike.  There are a couple of options and a really nice dock you can walk onto in the middle of a lake.

Views And Vistas At Boulder’s Teller Farm Trailhead

We enjoyed gorgeous reflective views of homes in Park Lake from the trail, unbeatable mountain views of the Flatirons, wild horses grazing under purple mountain peaks and more.   Hiking in the evening offered great views and solitude, but the canals and lake draw plenty of ‘skeeters, so next time we’ll go back during the day.
