Boulder Falls

Beautiful Boulder Falls at Boulder Canyon, Boulder, Colorado

Boulder Falls @ Boulder Canyon
Boulder Falls is located approximately 11 miles west of Boulder — a short distance up Boulder Canyon. Take Canyon Blvd. (Hwy 119) west and watch for the sign roughly halfway between Boulder and Nederland.

Park on the side of the road and walk across the street (it's busy, so be careful). Follow the trail — it's a short .3 mile hike in to see the 70-ft-high waterfalls up close.

It's well worth the drive and hike to see the cascading waterfalls, especially if this is your first visit to the Boulder area.

The small viewing area gives you great views for taking pictures of the scenic Boulder Falls — where North Boulder Creek plunges 70 feet into Middle Boulder Creek.

Hiking Trail leading to Boulder Falls at Boulder Canyon, Boulder, Colorado

It's an easy hike, however, we suggest that you wear comfortable walking shoes — when we visited the falls, we had just come from a Graduation Party and found it a little challenging navigating the trail in heels (see photos below).
