With the warm weather finally upon us, you may feel the itch to get outside and take a hike. But in Boulder County, some trails may be best to avoid.

Most of the Heil Valley Ranch trail system in Boulder County, with the lone exception of its 1.3-mile Lichen Loop has been closed. Most of the closures are due to wet conditions, but the Greenbelt Plateau and Marshall Mesa Trailheads will only be closed from on Sunday, May 19 for the Superior Morgul Road Race.

  • Boulder Falls
