Girl Scout Troops can Now Book a Hike at Meadow Mountain Ranch

Meadow Mountain Ranch is now open for Girl Scout troops to book for a day hike on the Nature Trail or the other trails on the property! The Nature Tail  is a 1.25 mile one-way trail with 21 stops along the way. The trail winds through aspen grove forests and along the north lateral moraine up to the top of Vista Spur with its nearly circular panoramas of high mountain peaks! Trail-goers experience history, geology, biology, math, and science while following along with activity guides with unique lessons or games specific to each stop on the trail. There are four activities guides and accompanying patches for each season: fall, winter, spring, and summer. You will learn about plants, flowers, animals, rocks, trees – all with a view!

The Nature Trail at MMR is available for Girl Scout troops, groups, and families to reserve for a day-only hike between 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Up to two groups can book per day. All members of the group must have either a current Girl Scout membership or additional insurance for the non-members in the group must be purchased for the day by emailing

In accordance with COVID-19 guidelines from the Colorado Department of Health and Environment, GSCO can allow for troops to use the Nature Trail under the Outdoor Recreation sector guidelines. As long as Boulder County is in Level Yellow, groups need to be 10 people or fewer. A troop larger than 10 can still rent the Nature Trail and then divide into multiple smaller groups of 10 or fewer and have different starting times for their hike. If Boulder County moves to Level Blue, group sizes can be up to 25. Read more about GSCO COVID – 19 guidelines for in person activities.

We want to hear how your girl is using her Girl Scout skills by taking initiative, caring for the community, and Girl Scouting at home. She can send in her story here.
