Niwot Loop Trail

Niwot Loop Trail

I found the Niwot Look Trail by accident. Last week, I was driving along Mineral Road on my way to Boulder and the evening light was so beautiful that I pulled off on side road so I could stop and take a picture. The side road I pulled off on was 79th Street and it so happens that right there, after turning from Mineral Road onto 79th Street, sits the Niwot Loop Trailhead.

We spent the first night of our California visit in a rather shabby La Quinta in the East Bay town of Dublin. After a night squandered tossing and turning on an uncomfortable mattress, we were anxious to be on our way.
