Bobolink Trailhead

Aliases: South Boulder Creek Trail, Centennial Trail

From late May through mid-July, the stars of the show along this trail are – you guessed it – Bobolinks! This is one of the few reliable nesting sites for the species along the Colorado Front Range. A nice riparian walk along South Boulder Creek provides viewing of some water and forest birds and adjacent tallgrass prairie provides habitat for grassland birds. Also watch for foxes and coyotes in the fields.
