I don’t normally do public service announcements, but in case you don’t subscribe to AllTrails.com, this is an East Boulder Trail update.

I ran the three or so miles out to the bridge over Boulder Creek, despite having read the bridge-outage notice at the trailhead. I didn’t really know what the sign meant, if the creek was indeed passable. I needed to check out that bridge.

I would say the creek is passable. I didn’t care to climb down the slope and get my trail shoes wet, so I turned my planned eight-mile run into a six-miler. Boulder Creek is passable if you have to get to the other side, it’s not dry. In the photo above, which trail over my head do you think I ran?

I ran the outside loop, with the perspective of the straight, crushed gravel trail as my anchor.
