Walk 26 miles around Boulder on the last Saturday of June, to end Walk and Bike Month with a bang!
On June 29, we'll go on a grand all-day adventure, walking counter-clockwise around the city on the Walk 360 route. We'll traverse every kind of walking surface in the city, explore diverse neighborhoods and enjoy cool parks and open spaces along Boulder's urban edges.
The Walk 360 gives Boulder walkers a whole new perspective on the city, demonstrating walkable connections among destinations and safe ways to get around Boulder's busiest streets by foot. We'll have plenty of places to stop for breaks and water along the way, and we'll take a lunch break at the Table Mesa Shopping Center.
Registration is required and is free. Everyone who completes the route will receive a Walk 360 sticker AND a keychain medallion. Challenge yourself to this one-of-a-kind adventure!
Schedule and Planning: We'll meet at Four Mile Creek Trailhead at 7:00 a.m. and finish the full loop by 6:30 p.m. We'll walk counter-clockwise, going from Lee Hill Drive to North Boulder Park, on to Chautauqua, Table Mesa Shopping Center, East Boulder Recreation Center, Valmont Bike Park, and back to the starting place.
