Were in Boulder with a family of five (9 year old girl, 12 year old boy, 21 year old girl, and parents) in late August and it was hot. Decided not to walk in the open sun on the Mesa trails and instead head for some tree cover in Eldorado Canyon (inner canyon). We pulled over in the first parking lot past the parking for the pool on the park road. The kids loved scrambling on the rocks along the river, dipping in and out of the pools, and watching the rock climbers. We then headed back to the pool at the end of the day. Expensive but worth it. The classic rock tunes over the speakers added to the fun.
Liked Eldorado Canyon so much we came back the next day and drove all the way to the end of the park road to the Ranger station. Hiked the Rattle Snake Gulch trail which was challenging for the 9 year old but good views. On the way out pulled over on the park road half way down and dipped into the many pools. Fun!
