The scenic and beautiful neighborhood of Ridglea Hills lies up in the hills of East Boulder. The view of the neighborhood is second only to the view of the Flatirons Built as it sits on the hills above Baseline Reservoir. There is no view quite like overlooking the Baseline Reservoir anywhere else in Boulder. Ridglea Hills is one of the most unique neighborhoods around with a range of homes from modern designs to proven classics built as early as the 60’s.
Ridglea Hills sits in a very comfortable place in terms of transportation. Placed right between Baseline and Arapahoe with a straight shot to South Boulder, no commute will be a chore. Baseline is right on the RTD’s bus line which goes to multiple schools on its way into downtown, making it perfect for anyone.
Baseline’s long stretches of uninterrupted road are a big draw for many road bikers for both transportation and recreation. There are plenty of dedicated bike trails just a short ride away through the quiet neighborhoods. Bobolink trail and the Dry Creek trail are just two right in the neighborhood. Also, being right beside a school zone has made it safe for riders of all ages.
Ridglea Hills offers the views and feel of a secluded neighborhood without the downside of being far from all the amenities found in town. There are an abundance of hiking and biking trails right in the neighborhood offering even more breathtaking views. The East Boulder Rec Center is just around the corner. The Baseline Reservoir is right across the street to members for water sports. The Flatiron Golf course also just down a few block on Arapahoe.
The Ridglea Hills neighborhood offers plenty of shopping choices. The Meadows Shopping center is just down Baseline with a Safeway, Michael’s, and a handful of places to eat. Arapahoe offers just as much without going much further. A few shopping centers just West of 55th offer a handful of good restaurants, bike shop, thrift store, record store, and BDT (formerly Boulder Dinner Theater). But in either case, there’s nothing out of reach of this neighborhood.
