This was a pretty drive, but, since we weren't planning to hike, we were put off by the $5 parking fee. So, we just drove up and back down. The views were pretty from the road and we did see a deer.

Stone's throw from Boulder and worth every bit. Great views. Great spots for picnics and walks. Hair-raising drive up and down!

I climbed up to the star during the winter. It is very steep, but beautiful. I really enjoyed it just now in June - the drive up is very pretty. There are many places to stop along the way and take pictures of the different views. Great view of Boulder. At the top there is a beautiful amphitheater and a... More

Great place to meditate, shoot fabulous photos and eat a pie or pizza. This is where we have revered those who have passed on, celebrated birthdays with cake and I have shot many a video for my clients on You Tube.

Ok, if you really can't walk, I guess it would be ok to drive this, then stop at an overlook or take a short walk at the top. But the road is a favorite of local bicyclists and it can be too windy and narrow to pass them on the way up in many spots. So, expect to be stuck... More

The drive up Flagstaff Mountain was not too bad. There are plenty of pull off spots for resting, picture taking, etc. I was amazed at how many bikers are also climbing/descending the mountain, so be careful. Also, there are restrooms at the top.

A cool drive and an excellent view of Boulder Valley. A very cool park at the top. Plenty of space for a nice hike with views from every angle.

Yes, the outlook overlooks the city, I'm reminded of a 60s Seattle song about the Space Needle, " Yes, and tourists come from everywhere, to see the people on the ground". Lots of people get married here also. Why I wonder?

Spent an evening driving up Flagstaff Mountain. There are many pull-off areas where you can park you car and enjoy the scenery, or take a hike. If you travel by car, be wary of the bike and skateboard (yes, skateboard) travelers on the narrow, twisty roads. Wildlife abounds - we saw many herds of deer. (I understand there can be... More
