We ended up driving up the mountain by accident and I am so glad we did. The views at every scenic stop were unbelievable. Some of the turns up the mountain were very sharp so make sure you take it nice and slow.

Great drive up from Boulder, has beautiful views and several spots to stop on the way up (and back down) for photo's. Really curvy road, be careful!

The views are beautiful and the trails are in excellent shape. The drive up the mountain is slow and you must be VERY cautious of the bicycle riders who seem to have NO fear going down hill as fast as they can and cutting across the road. It's difficult to say just how gorgeous this mountain truly is.

The benefit of Flagstaff mountain is the number and variety of clearly marked trails to choose from. There is truly something for all ability levels and the views are incredible.

Watch out for locals on bikes "bombing" down the mountain and huffing and puffing up. Famous for that. Please drive careful. Located right passed The Flatirons, another place you have to at least get out and walk, ride about 3-5 minutes up and you'll reach a great spot to watch the sunset with your babe or take your camera if...

We drove up Flagstaff Mountain for a beautiful view. There is a $5 parking fee at the top if you want to park and hike but you can drive up and back down for free stopping at the roadside stops along the way for some breathtaking views and the winding road will give you some awesome views as well. There... More

Flagstaff Restaurant was closed when we went up, BUT returning in September with Daughter and we plan to DINE FINE up there! Weather was stunning in April, with SNOW in Aspen, and the Forests which allowed some skiing.

Stunning! Located right out side of the city by CU Boulder. You drive up a winding road with amazing views and several hiking trails. If you are looking for some car hiking with occasional stops for some picture taking, this is the place! Best views for overall views, sunsets, and sunrises!

The best view from only a short drive from town. Winding mountain roads ( if you're rubber necking pull over and let the locals by) . Deer and animals, rock climbing, trail running, mountain biking, and road biking all summer long. In the winter so quiet you an here the snow falling. Views of the valley, and the continental divide... More

We drove the route up Flagstaff Mountain and the views were amazing! Narrow, windy roads with lots of bikers, but not a problem if you just take it slow. We stopped off at several places along the way to explore and take in the views of the city below, the mountains and rock formations. Moat of the parking along the... More
