Eldorado Springs is a small community nestled in the Foothills just South of Boulder known for its outdoor activities. Eldorado Springs offers over 500 different rock climbing routes, hiking and biking are among the outdoor activities that visitors and residents take part in.
The historic Eldorado Springs Swimming Pool, which is fed directly from an artesian spring, opened in 1905 and was called "The Coney Island of the West." It is still open today. Hiking is another great way to experience the astounding natural beauty of this area. People aren't the only wildlife here — mule deer, mountain lions, foxes, black bears, golden eagles and seven species of bats abide in this protected haven.
