Walker Ranch is one of Boulder County's Open Spaces.  Walker Ranch is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a cultural landscape.  This will be a loop hike in clockwise direction.  We begin the hike at the Crescent Meadows Parking Lot.   After hiking downhill the first 1 mile, the trail steeply ascends to the Walker Ranch Loop Trailhead.  From there we descend gradually to the Eldorado Canyon trail fork, then cross the South Boulder Creek on the east side before the 2.5 mile uphill back to our cars.

Meeting place/time:  CMC East (Coors) parking lot at 7:30 for a 7:35 departure time.   Those who feel safe may carpool but plan to drive yourself - carpooling is not guaranteed.

Directions to TH:  From CMC, take Washington Ave to CO 93 for 1.0 mile.  Drive CO 93 to CO 72, West Coal Creek Canyon for 14.7 miles, turn right onto Crescent Park Drive.  Drive 1.0 mile and turn onto Gross Dam Road.  On Gross Dam road, drive 1.8 miles to Crescent Meadows TH parking lot on the right.
