Future Trail Extensions

Boulder Canyon Trail Extension Map

Boulder County Transportation, in partnership with the City of Boulder and Colorado Department of Transportation, is evaluating plans to extend the Boulder Canyon Trail further west along SH 119/Boulder Canyon Drive.

The planned extension will result in a 10-foot wide trail from the current terminus near Fourmile Canyon Drive west to Chapman Drive, including a potential grade-separated connection to Fourmile Canyon Drive and the Betasso Preserve open space. The trail extension will improve safety for cyclists, pedestrians and motor vehicles traveling in Boulder Canyon.
