Boulder’s Best Kept Secret: Hessie Trailhead

June 25th, 2021

So it is indeed getting chillier… but SO WHAT. You are a devout outdoorsman or outdoorswoman and nothing less than apocalyptic plague of locust would stop you from racing up mountains, rambling through rivers, or taking Zibeon, your falcon, out for a jaunt. A great place to start is   at the Hessie Trailhead, which leads into the Indian Peaks Wilderness, no matter your level of outdoorsy-ness. I list several hike options below ranging from easy to difficult. Easy Hikes First Waterfalls on Middle Boulder Creek: A very short hike from the actual trailhead, and just over 0.6 mile from parking... Read More

Outdoor Adventure of the Week: Historic Eldora

September 22nd, 2020

But have you ever been to the Historic town of Eldora just below the popular ski resort? Admittedly, there isn’t a whole lot to be found here as many of the town buildings are shuttered with a few newer cabins and homes scattered around the valley, but if you are up for a snowshoe adventure this is the spot for you. A one-time gold mining camp, Eldora is neatly tucked back into Roosevelt National Forest. It was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic... Read More

Top 3 Restaurants in Nederland

July 25th, 2019

1. Crosscut Pizzeria and Taphouse Lonely Planet has called out Crosscut for having some of the best Italian-style pizza in Colorado. The crust is what makes the pizza, and Crosscut knows how to do it well. Their thin crust is chewy and crispy, plus it’s wood-fired to give it a smoky taste. Try the margherita pizza with a nice, cold beer. 2. Kathmandu Restaurant I wouldn’t expect Nederland to be known for their Indian food, but this cozy joint serves up some hefty portions of well-spiced food with a daily lunch buffet. They also have vegetarian options. If you’re looking for... Read More
