This is a round up my exercise and hiking activity for my third trimester of pregnancy, as well as the fourth trimester (the first 3 months postpartum) together. From my pregnancy and postpartum period I have learned to be kind to myself, slow things down, and exercise only to the point that my body feels comfortable.
The Royal Arch Trail is an iconic Boulder hike in the historic Chautauqua Park to a beautiful geological feature. At 3.2 miles with 1,400 ft elevation gain, it is a strenuous hike. It is a great option for anyone who wants to see some highlights of Boulder and Chautauqua Park, while also getting a great workout.
