Forever Views

Walking paths with forever views and oh so close in Boulder County! This lake area is tucked into a charming neighborhood. In the summer, boats can be rented too!

Great place for a run
Sep 2019
Davidson Mesa is basically a small park that is nestled in a residential Louisville neighborhood and it overlooks the city of Boulder. There are lots of dirt-packed trails for running or biking, and some awesome views of the mountains and Boulder. Highly recommend this place.

WARNING: A OLDER COUPLE HIT MY PUPPY HERE
Oct 2019
***AN OLDER COUPLE HIT MY PUPPY HERE***

So disappointed and saddened with my experience at Davidson Mesa trailhead dog park today. We are new to the area and one of the neighbors recommended this park for off leash dog play. I researched it before hand and it seemed like a nice place. Boy was I wrong. I have a 5 month old rescued Australian Shepherd and this park says it is an off leash park and puppies over 4 months are welcome to come play. My pup is such a good boy and mostly trained. He is still a puppy though. The problem started as soon as we entered the park around 11am on October 3rd 2019. There was an old couple (probably in their 60's) sitting right at the front of the inside of the off leash dog area, in camping chairs they had brought and set up. I said good morning to them and got no reply, just glares back. I thought this was odd as Louisville seems like a welcoming place. I proceeded to let my pup off his leash and he ran around and was having a blast. The rude couple from earlier were still sitting in their chairs and holding their dog in their lap. My pup got close to them as he was curious about their dog and their dog proceeded to snarl and snap at my dog. I took this as a cue to get my dog away from theirs. However; my curious pup ran up to their chairs to investigate their dog before I could grab him. The old rude couple proceeded to scream at me to get my "horrible dog away from their princess" AND HIT MY DOG. I was shocked. My puppy was simply sitting by their chairs trying to sniff their dog, remember he is only 5 months old. Meanwhile their dog was growling and barking and trying to attack my dog. The couple proceeded to tell me that I needed to put my dog on a leash and leave because "their dog doesn't like dogs that are bigger than her" (my pup is 20lbs). I was so shocked I was speechless. I asked them why they were so upset as it is an off leash dog park and they continued to yell and me and my dog to get away and leave. Meanwhile the woman got out of her seat and continued to swat at my dog while he was sitting next to me on his leash. I was so upset I started crying. I suggested maybe they should go to a small dog specific park if their dog doesn't like larger dogs (as this park is an any size dog park). They continued to threaten me and my dog so I just left. I am so sad for my puppy that he had to experience this. I felt so unwelcome and judged by this couple and hurt my their actions and words toward my 5 month old puppy and I. I will never come back here and I recommend that you stay away from the park if you see an older couple sitting in chairs in the park. I reported this incident to a ranger who was on the premise and had witnessed the actions. He told me that I should go to the city council to report it, which I will be doing. Nobody has the right to tell me and my dog to leave an off leash dog park when my dog did nothing wrong and was obeying all the rules. Also the fact that they hit my 5 month old puppy for sniffing their dog is horrible. I also feel like people who don't like all dogs should not be going to a dog park where it claims "all dogs are welcome". Just wanted to warn people of my experience here! I hope this never happens to anyone else. I took a picture of the rules just to make sure that I was following them and I was.

Great place to run and walk your dog!

I had a great run around Harper Lake. Also the park is a great place to run, walk, or bring your dog for a walk. Beautiful views and nice walking trails.

Ideal place for runners!

We were visiting the area from Florida and needed to find a place to run 8-10 miles. Davidson Mesa was the perfect spot. It has nice, flat, smooth trails and the views of the Flat Irons are amazing!

Beautiful Views!

Davidson Mesa provided great views and for a nice evening walk. The prairie dogs were a fun surprise. The location was great and would be a nice place for walking or biking.

Great dog park
Jun 2019 • Couples
While there are various areas to walk on leash in this area, there is also a dog park that is fenced in, huge and a great area to let the dogs run around off leash. All the dogs and people we encountered were super friendly. Views are amazing too. What a gem of a location. The dog park area was clean and not at all muddy at the time we visited. Ample parking too.

beautiful spot for a walk, run, or bike
Jun 2019 • Couples
This reasonably flat mesa has multiple options for distance and is an ideal spot for a walk, run or bike and is extremely accessible. FYI- the dog park frequently closes for short periods of time follow large rains or snow melt events due to mud.

Spectacular Boulder Valley views
Apr 2019 • Friends
Whether walking your dog, taking a gentle stroll, cycling your bike or training for the Bolder Boulder, Davidson Mesa is worth visiting. The round trip walk from parking lot out and back takes about 50 minutes on gravel trails. The view across the valley is spectacular in the morning. At sunset, it's even more beautiful.

Stunning View

Davidson Mesa is just one of the many stunning views overlooking Boulder Co. It is Breathtaking and a great Dog park or walking trail. It goes from Louisville just off McCaslin. See the gorgeous Fourteeners. The lovely valley below.
