Ruth Roberts Connector Trail Now Open
The Ruth Roberts Connector Trail that provides a trail link between Broomfield’s Lake Link Trail and the Boulder County Rock Creek Trail will be open to the public as of July 24.

This fall, volunteer youth from both Broomfield and Boulder County will complete the revegetation work along the sides of the trail. This project is a cooperative effort between the City and County of Broomfield and Boulder County. Colorado State Trails/Great Outdoors Colorado provided a $45,000 grant toward the construction.

The crusher fines trail is approximately .9 miles long, and includes an approximately 45-foot long and 10-foot wide steel bridge to allow for access across a drainage way. The project will open up many regional and local trails to citizens in Boulder County as well as the City and County of Broomfield.
