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

This was one of our first stops on our first visits to Boulder, and it was awesome! The drive was scenic, but watch for bicycles. We parked and hiked at Realization Point, which had nice trails and fantastic views. Can't wait to return and take in even more on next visit.

The only downside to Flagstaff are the bikers on weekends on these narrow roads. Everything else is great. Some good short hike around the amphitheater area. Artists Point has some nice views if you can peak around the trees that have grown there since they named it 100 years ago. From Flagstaff Rd. there is a two hour RT hike... More

The bad news: it's steep and there are tons of road bikers going up and down so drive slowly. The good news: everything else. Stunning views, great hiking trails. If you find yourself in Boulder, go there.

At (6983 feet elevation) it was an easy walk up to Flagstaff Summit lookout point from where we parked our car, by the way there is a parking convenience fee ($5) so be sure to have cash on you. You can opt for the nature trail or take the easier route - a paved road that leads up to the... More

This is how you would get to the Star in the weather, where climbing to the top and sliding down is encouraged! Bouldering the monkey or y traverse is known in this area but bring a pad bc the falls are uneven and you could hurt an ankle very easily. There are a few lead and toprope routes. You can... More

Loved the views and experience. Worth the trip for me. Disliked nerve wracking drive up baseline with cars honking at times when it wasn't safe to pass cyclists. But still, worth doing in my book.

A must if you are in the Boulder area. The drive is gorgeous, especially in the winter. But it can be a bit icy, so go slow or have a four wheel drive. Gorgeous views and a hike at the top.
