Boulder Falls

(NOTE: We have updated this article and re-published on our platform Travel1000Places.com. Read the updated article here: Boulder, Colorado, USA - sightseeing )

The Boulder Falls (20 m / 66 ft high) are situated 11 mi west of Boulder, on the north side of Boulder Canyon Drive (SR 119). Canyon Drive connects Boulder with the City of Nederland.

The waterfall lies on former approx. 20.000 square meters mines area which once was owned by a man named Charles G. Buckingham, the president of the former Buckingham Brothers bank. Buckingham possessed the land since 1881 and donated it in 1914 to the city, so that the beauty of the area could survive and the public could be given access.
Boulder Falls area is ideal for a short walk when you're, e.g., on the way to Nederland.
Rock climbing is quite popular here but at the Boulder Falls occurred also the majority of all deadly incidents.
