Area Still Closed – Open Summer 2019
The Anne U. White Trail was significantly damaged by the September 2013 flood. It is the only trail affected by the disaster that remains closed. Because of safety and access issues, staff has decided to keep the property closed until after the expanded parking lot and trailhead are completed. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, Parks & Open Space hopes to reopen the trail in summer 2019.
Future Trailhead Expansion
As the popularity of the trail has grown over the years, so have the needs for more parking on busier weekends when the five-car parking area is insufficient.
Boulder County acquired two properties on Pinto Drive along the creek through the flood buyout program that will provide an opportunity to expand the trailhead and parking areas. Feasibility studies and design work have begun and the plans will be presented at public hearings. The public process will begin in October 2018 with a neighborhood meeting, followed by a public hearing at POSAC in November or December. Specific meeting dates and general updates will be posted here.
We appreciate your patience, input, and assistance in the county’s endeavors as the recovery process continues to evolve.
