I decided to hike at Gross Reservoir a place Josh and I found years ago while taking a motorcycle ride one day in the mountains. Last summer, I spent most of my time hiking in the Indian Peaks Wilderness (use the search tool to the right on blog to find many trails in the Indian Peaks) and passed the turnoff to Gross Dam Reservoir numerous along the way. This summer, with the limitations of being pregnant, I decided to explore the numerous trails around the dam west of Boulder. The trails aren't very popular during the week and its a great place to get a taste of high country hiking but staying closer to home. Gross Dam Reservoir in Boulder County in Coal Creek Canyon off of Hwy 72.
