The trails on Marshall Mesa, located south of Boulder to the southeast of the intersection of Hwy 93 and 170, roll across open prairie. Several new trails in this area have opened in just the past year. Most are wide, have smooth tread and are suitable for beginner bikers. You can link the trails in large loops or ride them out and back. The Marshall Valley trail runs gently uphill 0.8 mile from the trailhead parking lot and intersects with Cowdrey Draw (0.8 mi.), mostly level, and Community Ditch (3.6 mi.), double track and mostly level. The Coal Seam trail runs 0.5 mile from the trailhead on a more challenging line and intersects with Community Ditch. The Greenbelt Plateau trail climbs 1.2 mile from the valley to the top of the plateau and connects with the High Plains Trail that runs for nearly 15 miles, looping east into Louisville before turning north and then west back to Marshall Mesa. The Greenbelt Plateau trail also connects with the Doudy Draw trails on the west side of Hwy 93.
