The Goat Connector (named for old Mrs. Cunningham, who raise goats on the property and was known by local kids as the ‘Goat Lady’) heads north from the existing Goat Trail to Linden Avenue.
A nice undesignated trail currently makes the connection. It is slated to become an official trail under OSMP’s West Trail Study Area Plan.

The Trail Around Boulder is a 37 mile loop trail encircling the City of Boulder, Colorado, all on dirt. It passes through a wide variety of landscape and wildlife habitat, giving visitors a great tour of the ecological diversity of this beautiful area.
The Trail Around Boulder utilizes mostly existing trails, with only 7 new trail miles needed to complete the loop. Virtually all the connections are either already planned for construction, trivial to complete, or have been planned for many years but never built. Apart from road crossings and one railroad crossing, all the land needed to complete the Trail Around Boulder is already owned by the City.
The Trail Around Boulder is being promoted by the Boulder Area Trails Coalition, a 501(c)(3) non-profit that promotes environmentally responsible, multi-use trails for everyone: hikers, runners, equestrians, mountain bikers, dog walkers, bird watchers, climbers, and YOU!
