Over 300 participants and volunteers came out to celebrate National Trails Day at the 2019 Broomfield Trail Adventure on Saturday, June 1 at Flatiron Station. Hikers viewed scenic mountain vistas, peaceful Rock Creek, and excellent wildlife viewing opportunities on this 1.3 mile walking loop. Bikers experienced the US-36 bikeway by journeying down to Arista and back on the 6-mile biking loop. This was also the first year to add the Broomfield BioBlitz on iNaturalist, where participants learned about our local flora and fauna in this friendly competition to find as many species as possible!
