The Boulder Canyon Trail is a 8.6 mile out and back hike. The trail is rated as hard and after completing it I have to agree or at least by my rating it is a hard trail. The elevation total gain was given as about 2000 feet my Apple Watch showed 1984 feet elevation gain. The hike is well worth the effort as you will see in the below pictures there were lots of beautiful scenery.
AllTrails listed the trail as moderately trafficked but we only saw a couple of other hikers on the trail. As we were hike i noticed there were a lot of signs of horses using trail and sure enough we met up with a group on a trail ride and got several good pictures.
