Located just outside of Boulder, rock climbers from around the world come to assail the steep canyon walls with the scenic South Boulder Creek at their base. Mule deer, elk, black bear, bobcat, red fox, coyote and mountain lion inhabit the foothills in and around Eldorado Canyon. Large populations of bats breed in the caves in the Inner Canyon.  Try some of the trails. Get some photos of the climbers.
