Accessible Betasso Preserve - Boulder County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: Well up in the foothills, this preserve provides access to extensive Ponderosa Pine and mountain meadow habitat.

Habitat: Ponderosa Forest
Directions: From Boulder, head west on Canyon Boulevard (CO 119) up Boulder Canyon towards Nederland. About five miles from Boulder, turn right (north) on Sugarloaf Road and follow it about a mile to Betasso Road. Turn right on Betasso and follow it into the preserve.
