Outdoor Exploration: Red Rocks Trail in Boulder, CO

After traveling to Nebraska to visit family for the 4th of July, my sister Gemma made the trip back with me to Colorado! Even though she was only here for a short time, we got to do some hiking.

We headed over to the Settler’s Park Trailhead near downtown Boulder and started up the trail. It was an uncharacteristically humid day, so we were happy with the short (but steep) loop it offered.

Once you reach the peak of the rocks, you can climb them!

This one is for my parents: they don’t like when I/we hang off the end of rocks. She is fine! But don’t try climbing rocks if you aren’t completely sure of your footing.
