A great shady oasis. Overloved and often crowded. The narrow canyon that made Anne U White so special was also its downfall. Prior to the 2013 flood, it was amazing to see how the landscape was changed here due to minor flash flooding. 20" of rain in a week was too much and sadly the entire Wagon Wheel neighborhood downstream...

Anne Underwood White, wife of Gilbert White (a professor of water hazard science at CU) saved beautiful and pristine areas from being developed. One of these places was along a creek heading into the foothills from Boulder. Developers wanted to put a road through there and sell house lots on either side. She stopped that, and she would be proud... More

It is closed indefinitely as it is a river bed and no longer a trail:( it used to be quite lovely with lots of wildlife as well!

This is a lovely trail and shady with a running stream in the early spring and summer. Parking is very limited due to the success of the neighbors in discouraging visitors. Also, this trail may be permanently closed due to the 2013 flood based on rumors I have heard, so be sure to check before you go there.

Easy hike that my dogs love. Crossing small streams the whole time. If you like the woods this is a great hike.

Anne U. White was one of our favorite trails before the flood of 2013 closed it. It is rumored to be re-opened eventually. The trail is very secluded and not too busy, and has some beautiful scenery. The only drawback was the very limited parking, but early weekday mornings proved to be OK. We look forward to the re-opening. (The... More

This is my special hiking place. The trail was closed after the September 2013 flooding, but Boulder County Parks and Open Space is planning to rebuild The Ann U. White Trail and keep it much the same with approximately 25 creek crossings. The memories I have of hiking this secluded canyon trail continue to help me carry on in hopes... More

If you do some web searching you can see a photo that makes it obvious why the trail is closed. The parking area was completely washed out (and I wonder how much damage the two homes next to it suffered - my sympathies to the owners!). Assuming the trail does reopen (and that's the plan), I'll say that the Anne... More

Beautiful place to hike with water, flowers, and gorgeous scenery. This used to be my favorite place to hike outside of Boulder, but because of the very limited parking, I've stopped coimg here.
