East Boulder Trail extends to the west from this location through rolling hills of the grassland ecosystem. (**Please note that all visitors must stay on trail in the White Rocks Nature Preserve as the property is private land for which Boulder holds a conservation easement.) The western terminus is at the Gunbarrel Trailhead at the intersection of Boulderado and Cambridge in the Heatherwood neighborhood.

The trail passes through the Lower Boulder Creek Habitat Conservation Area (HCA) where off-trail travel is not permitted without a permit. This southbound trail can be taken across Valmont Road and into Teller Farm. Its terminus is at the South Trailhead of Teller Farm (north of Arapahoe Road).
