Interim Joder Trailhead
Always bring a face covering when leaving your home. Anyone over 12 years old is required to wear face coverings anytime they cannot maintain six feet of distance at OSMP trailheads and when passing others on trails. If visitors are at least 6 feet away from others, they do not need to wear a face covering over their nose and mouth. However, if visitors reach 6 feet distance to someone else on the trail, they should put the covering back over their nose and mouth. Learn more.
Limited parking on Flagstaff Mountain. Flagstaff Mountain continues to be busy on the weekends. Parking is extremely limited. For your safety & the safety of others, do not park along the side of the road. Illegally parked vehicles can be ticketed and towed. Consider visiting different locations.

Siempre traigan un cobertor facial cuando salgan de su hogar. Cualquier persona mayor de 12 años requiere usar un cobertor facial cuando no pueda mantener una distancia de 6 pies (2m), ya sea en las entradas de los parques o cuando pasen a otros en el sendero. Si los visitantes están a más de 6 pies (2m) de otros, no necesitan usarlo para cubrirse la nariz y la boca. Sin embargo, si los visitantes se acercan a 6 pies (2m) o menos de distancia de alguien en el sendero, deben cubrirse la nariz y la boca.
Stay on trail and walk through mud. If needed, step off to maintain distance. Please avoid stepping on vegetation. If possible, step onto a rock or a bare spot to let others pass, then step back on the trail. Politely announce yourself if you need to pass others. Traveling off trail, whether hiking, running or biking, can permanently damage vegetation and widen trails. Learn more.

Open Space and Mountain Parks visitors can now access the city’s Joder Ranch open space area through a new trail and trailhead Open Space and Mountain Parks recently opened. The 1.9-mile interim trail takes visitors along rolling grasslands into forested foothill communities that stretch across Joder Ranch, a 335-acre expanse of city land that will be incorporated into OSMP’s North Trail Study Area (TSA) Plan. This plan will identify long-term visitor access and experience improvements for OSMP-managed lands in the North Trail Study Area that stretches north of Boulder. The final vision for the trail and trailhead will be determined in the North Trail Study Area Plan with input from our community, the Open Space Board of Trustees and the Boulder City Council.
Trail alignment for the Interim Joder Trail was based on existing trails through the Joder property. A variety of trail widths were implemented.
