A birthday hike for my girlfriend — one of her favorite hikes. A great day for the hike. Very easy 6-mile hike. The Boulder Open Space program now protects almost two-thirds of the Boulder Valley, commonly referred to as the “greenbelt.” To this point, the City has acquired approximately 6,100 acres of Mountain Parks lands, approximately 2,700 acres of other park lands, approximately 29,000 acres of Open Space, approximately 480 acres of utility lands, for a total of 38,500 acres. The County Open Space Program now owns over 54,000 acres.
