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.
