Route Description for Sage and Eagle Loop Trail
Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and reconnect with nature along the Sage and Eagle Loop Hike. The ideal outdoor experience for the whole family, kids will enjoy exploring the pond's ecosystems and wildlife like herons, ducks, and geese! Adults will enjoy the sights of the foothills that line the horizon and Boulder’s cityscape. Note this path is completely exposed, so it can be unbearably hot in the summer months, so we opt for early morning walks in the warmer months.
Embark on your journey along the Sage and Eagle Loop Trail from the Sage Trailhead. Though this path can be completed from either direction, we recommend hiking counterclockwise. From the trailhead, track southeast along the Sage Trail. Soon after your departure from the trailhead, you will encounter an intersection, stay left here and you will be diverted onto the Eagle Trail. Hike along the route, passing the Boulder Valley Ranch Pond.
At the next junction, keep left, reconnecting with the Sage Trail. Now wandering west, you will be rewarded with sights of the foothills. Follow this path all the way back to the trailhead, marking the end of your adventure.
