another good find for a small hike and picnic dinner afterwards. located maybe 10 min drive outside Boulder up beautiful sunshine canyon lays Bald Mountain Scenic Area. The loop is about 1 mile long and climbs a bit over 200 feet ( in the first 1/3 of a mile ) its steep but doable for all skill set… just take it easy when you are out of breathe.
There are benches on the way as well as on the top and also 4 picnic area towards the parking area which also feature a well maintain portapotty. Dogs are allowed on leash.
