The City of Boulder’s Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) Department needs you help to improve the East Boulder-White Rock Rocks Trail.

  • Your signed, Risk and Release Form
  • Snacks
  • Four quarts of water or camel packs
  • Work Gloves
  • Safety Glasses and/or Sunglasses
  • Sturdy boots (no lightweight shoes, or “five-finger” type of shoes
  • Backpack to carry personal items
  • Clothing appropriate for weather conditions (dress in layers, wear long pants, a long sleeved t-shirt, rain jacket)
  • Personal first aid kit (OSMP will have a group first aid kit)

What is National Trails Day?

According to the American Hiking Society, National Trails Day is our nations largest celebration of trails. On this day, June 7th, organizations and groups nationwide celebrate America’s trails by organizing hikes, stewardship projects, bike rides, horseback rides, and other activities.

It would be great to have some Boulder County horse owners on this project since we use this trail a lot!
When you sign-up please be sure to let OSMP know that you’re with the Boulder County Horse Association.
