- HOW TO GO
Snow Shoeing in Coney Flats, Boulder, Colorado USA
It is an easy going community only 16 mi/25.8 km away from Boulder. One of the most popular sports in Boulder is snowshoeing. A great place to snowshoe is Coney Flats. It is a 14.25 mi/23 km trail. There are two points of access, one from CO 96, where the mark on the highway says Boy Scout camp and the second is near Peaceful valley at the Camp Dick turn off.
CO 96 is recommended, because it has free parking and you pass a dirt road. If you choose Camp Dick, you face a very technical and difficult ride to the top. The dirt road is about 3 mi/4.82 km long and you snowshoe through a burned forest. Plantation is rising again and some black trees are left as scars.
When you get on the trail, there are 4 technical mi/6.5 km in the forest. Forwardly the forest breaks and you get in Sawtooth. There are several water crossings, that turn into ice in winter. Reaching the top rewards you with spectacular view.
Take a moment to enjoy the view and go down again on a severe, technical and steep sections, downhill trail. There are 4 more water crossings and lots of smooth gravel. Exit the Camp Dick trailhead and continue on the paved road until peak-to-peak highway.
Then turn right and cross the cranking up hill, on paved road for about 2 mi/3.2 km, before you get to where you started.
