South mesa trailhead

South Mesa Trailhead is the most popular location for senior and other portrait shoots as it is the most diverse and has beautiful areas and light. It includes a bridge, fence, mountain backdrop, open fields, big rocks, a river, and much more. Any season is beautiful at South Mesa Trailhead. If your senior/portrait shoot is at South Mesa, you will not have to book a second location, as it has it all with the best light. South Mesa Trailpark is the most popular location and my favorite.

How to get there:

1.7 miles west of Highway 93 on Eldorado Springs Drive (Highway 170). (about half an hour from Broomfield)

So it’s about a mile before entering Eldorado Springs – you will see a sign on your right. There is a small parking lot. None Boulder residents will need to pay $5 cash for Parking. I will meet you at the parking lot.

If you have booked this location with me, please meet me at the entrance of the park in front of the little parking lot. You will need $5 cash to park your car here. I will be waiting in front with my assistant and a purple wagon to carry all your clothes changes and other belongings.

See below how to get there and some sample pictures of the area.
