Even a little flooding can damage a building. i

It may not seem like a lot, but just an inch of flooding can cause major damage to a property and belongings and spur mold growth.

Flood risks vary by depth and likelihood

Major flood events are less likely to occur than smaller, more frequent events, but have a greater capacity for damage. If water reaches a building, the amount of damage, if any, will depend on the building's elevation and foundation.

Flood risks are changing because of the environment.

A changing environment means higher seas, new weather patterns, and stronger storms. As the atmosphere warms, there is more evaporation and more water available when it rains.

A warmer atmosphere also means warmer oceans, which can intensify flooding from hurricanes and offshore storms. Sea level rise also increases coastal flood risks, as higher seas mean there's more water available when high tides and coastal storms cause flooding.

There are solutions to protect your property.

Just an inch of flooding can cost $25,000 or more, yet typical homeowners insurance does not cover flood damage. Learn more about solutions to protect your home, business, and community.

    Removing leaves and other debris from clogged gutters and downspouts can prevent water from pooling around a building's foundation

    Most personal protection measures will require permits from a local floodplain manager. Community adaptation efforts can reduce flood risk and lower the costs of flood insurance, and communities may have their own hazard mitigation programs, tax incentives or rebates.

    A form of "dry flood-proofing," coatings and sealants that you apply to your foundation, walls, windows and doorways will help prevent flood water from leaking into your house through cracks or penetrations where utilities may come through. Sealants should meet ANSI 2510 standards.

    Choosing flooring for the first level of the house that is made of ceramic tile with water-resistant mortar, interlocking tile, concrete, or other nonporous materials can help reduce damage in the event of a flood.

    Sandbags can prevent or reduce flood water by acting as a barrier to divert moving water around, instead of through, buildings. Sandbags are most effective when used with plastic sheeting and stacked like bricks to form a wall. Many communities offer free sandbags when flooding is imminent.

  • accordion caret

    Rain barrels are containers connected to gutter downspouts that collect runoff from a building's roof, reducing minor flood risks. They range in size from 30 to 100 gallons, can be made of plastic or wood, and the collected rainwater can be used for activities like gardening or car washing.

    By adjusting the slope (grade) around a building's foundation, water can more easily flow away from the building. Regrading may be especially effective for older homes where the grade around it may have settled over time.

Lefthand Canyon Trail


Entrance to Lefthand Canyon

Entrance to Lefthand Canyon is well marked. Look for kiosk as you cross boundary into Roosevelt National Forest. There's a bit more parking room along the road if you drive in a short distance.

40.1066, -105.32236


Big Mother Hill South Entrance

Right here climbs very difficult Big Mother Hill marked Forest Road 286C. Camping downhill to left.

40.1068607, -105.3245505


Top Entrance to Big Mother Hill

Main Lefthand Canyon route turns sharp left here. Steep rocky climb on right goes to top end of Big Mother Hill. You can drive it in either direction, but top to bottom is a bit easier after you get up this first part.

40.11133, -105.3323718

Several roads converge here. This route turns right to follow Fireman Hill, 286D in a counterclockwise direction. You'll return to this point later. Straight ahead to left is main route 286. Slightly right on 286E follows canyon bottom and reconnects with main route higher up. Hard left downhill on unmarked road dead-ends in short distance at large mine adit. (If you continue downhill on Forest Road 286, you'll return to Five Points intersection. Continue to head west to return to start.)

40.11335, -105.33843

After steep difficult rocky climb up Fireman Hill, you reach a fork. Right is more scenic route. Left is direct route. Both routes reconnect higher up.

40.1207681, -105.3409907

Two routes converge in trees with several nice campspots. Continue west on narrow rocky road that soon drops steeply downhill.

40.1220935, -105.3435745

To return to Five Points, bear left here and follow 286 back downhill. Right goes uphill around another smaller loop and connects with Castle Creek Road that almost goes all the way back down to Highway 94. Unfortunately, a private gate blocks the exit and you have to turn around.

40.1231363, -105.3463491

Roads converge in this general area at a point called the "Squeeze." Left is the upper part of 286E mentioned earlier. An interesting road also goes right up a steep spot. This is a fun road that goes almost all the way downhill to Highway 94. Unfortunately, it's gated and you must turn around. Still it's a fun side trip due its narrowness and steepness. The Forest Service has hopes that someday they'll get the private land owner to remove his gates, allowing a big loop with Castle Creek Road.

Lefthand Canyon Reconstruction


Overall Project Schedule:

  • Begin Work – December 2015
  • End Work – February 2017
  • All work is weather and contractor dependent


During the September 2013 flood event, numerous sections of Lefthand Canyon Drive were either damaged or completely destroyed. In addition, Left Hand Creek was completely altered throughout the canyon. Soon after the flood, Boulder County Transportation worked diligently to create temporary “winter roads” that would allow residents and service providers access to homes and properties.

In the summer of 2014, the damaged sections of Lefthand Canyon Drive received temporary paving aimed at making the area safer for travel while engineering teams worked on final designs for permanent repairs.
In the spring of 2015, the Transportation Department partnered with Central Federal Lands (CFL – a division of the Federal Highway Administration) on the final designs and construction of Lefthand Canyon Drive and adjacent sections of Left Hand Creek.

The CFL/Boulder County partnership provided an opportunity to improve the design and accelerate the construction schedule. The project includes not only the reconstruction of the damaged road sections, but also better shoulders to improve safety for everyone who uses the canyon, four new bridges where the road crosses the creek and restoration of Left Hand Creek in areas adjacent to the road, which will create a vast improvement of the ecological health of the creek.

Breaking: Second fire in Boulder County discovered at Lefthand Canyon

Emergency responders race down US-36 towards the Cal-Wood Fire near Jamestown. Oct. 17, 2020 (Kevin Wu/CU Independent)

Early Sunday afternoon, a wildfire was discovered in Lefthand Canyon, which currently spans over five acres of land. 

The fire, which is started in the 14000 block of Lefthand Canyon Drive, was first seen at approximately 1 p.m and is now the second wildfire in Boulder County. In the few hours since it was discovered, it has forced a number of evacuations including the entire town of Ward and homes north of Ward such as Gold Hill, Spring Gulch Road and Gold Lake Road. Glendale is also under an evacuation warning. 

Alerts have also been sent to some residents in Longmont and Louisville who are not close to the fire, according to an article by the Denver Post, although it noted that “those not in the immediate vicinity of the fire do not need to evacuate.” 

According to the Boulder Office of Emergency Management Twitter account, the evacuation point for this fire is now at the Nederland Community Center at 750 Peak to Peak Highway, while large animals should be evacuated at the Gilpin County Fairgrounds, 230 Norton Drive.  

This is a developing story and will continue to be updated.

Lefthand OHV - Boulder MTB

Left Hand Canyon/Jamestown



Lefthand Canyon to Jamestown is one of Boulder’s most popular road biking rides. The combination of shady wilderness, a wide and paved shoulder, the steady rumbling of nearby creeks and the chance to end your ride in one of Colorado’s authentic mountain towns make this a great day out for riders of all abilities. The sustained grade is enough to get a workout but never overwhelming (even for beginner cyclists).

What Makes It Great

Once you escape Hwy 36, traffic will decrease (some people opt to park alongside the road at the start of Left Hand Canyon Drive rather than bike Hwy 36). Hill climbers can opt to grind up and over Olde Stage or Lee Hill roads in Boulder to avoid 36 altogether, though this tacks on some seriously steep elevation.

Starting from the intersection of Hwy 36 and Broadway in north Boulder, follow Hwy 36 6 miles to the left (west) turn to Left Hand Canyon (at the Green Briar Inn). From there it is 8 miles to Jamestown along Left Hand Canyon Drive then James Canyon Drive Return back to town for a 28 mile loop. Little James Creek will run alongside the majority of the tour and sharp-eyed riders will spot the old caverns of mining ruins in the rock on the side of the road.

The peaceful ride lets you experience the transition from plains to mountains, all on a well-maintained, paved road. This is a fantastic social ride for groups of mixed ability since there’s something for everyone. The aftermath of the 2013 floods in Boulder can also be seen along this ride, a testament of the power of nature.

Who is Going to Love It

Riders who are looking to improve their climbing without the worry of a difficult, steep downhill (as is the case with other Boulder road rides such as Flagstaff Road, Olde Stage and Linden Drive). Less experienced riders will be challenged by the sustained grade while veteran roadies will likely use this ride to benchmark improvements in their riding.

Directions, Parking, & Regulations

There are no fees but please be aware that the cops are very strict about giving tickets at the stop signs, so be sure to unclip and come to a complete stop. Many riders like to begin this adventure at Amante Coffee in north Boulder, a few hundred feet south of the intersection of Hwy 36 and Broadway.
