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.

The drive up was icy and a little scary. Plan on having 4 wheel drive. We didn't and we got stuck in a snow bank. We were rescued and were close enough to the top that we could walk up the final switchback. The view is breathtaking especially with the snow. I definitely wouldn't mind checking it out in summer...

After seeing the Flatirons, drive up the hill a bit and stop at the Flagstaff Summit. An easy drive or hike to the top. Stop, take a dip breath and enjoy the view. Restrooms available up top along with a outdoor amphitheater and a breathtaking view. Great place to overlook Boulder.

Love that it's halfway up the Flatirons with a fab view of the Boulder Valley. Be aware, it isn't cheap, which is why I only go there for special occasions (like our 25th anniversary). If you tell them, they'll do some kind of special something for you, like they made us a special dessert. Oh, the food is pretty darned... More

This is a gruelling ride on a bike or a lovely drive in a car, with a short walk at the top. It is highly worth the visit. There are quite magic picnic tables right at the top with views across the Rockies or overlooking Denver. A must do for any trip to Boulder.

The views are stunning and many paths are wheelchair accessible. Pictures here make it easy for a person to look like a pro. Nice folks along the trail in a friendly community.

Take a trek to the Boulder Star during the holidays or simply drive up to take in the view of the city at night or the sunrise.
