Quintessential mountain roads up/down Flagstaff only adds to the experience but make sure your breaks are good!

You won't regret a visit to Flagstaff Mountain. There are several places to pull off the road and hike or just sit at picnic tables and stone shelters to enjoy the stunning views of town and mountains.

Flagstaff Mountain offers the best views of Boulder (at least the best without a major hike or climb). There hiking trails available. Be sure to stop at some of the overlooks. Watch out for bicyclists and cars towing boats. Vehicles that are not registered in the city of Boulder have to pay for parking.

This was about a 4.3 mile round-trip hike with some walking around at the summit area. Really pretty views, the hike crosses the road about 4 different times and we had to watch for bikers and cars but it wasn't a problem. We got there early for a Sunday morning hike and didn't have problem with parking but when we... More

I love taking friends & family who are visiting up to "Lost Gulch" lookout point. That is where you drive up Flagstaff a ways up to that point, park, and you walk out onto the rocks. Extremely relaxing and gorgeous.

This place is nice and approachable by bike, walk, run or car. You can enjoy a picnic with friends, nice overlook of the Boulder area, view of the Flatirons. I would prefer it for a road bike training and or afternoon hikes with family (or romantic hike). Boulder registered cars have a free parking....

You get up very quick from Boulder. A great place to drive guests when they come to visit for a nice view of Boulder and if you travel up a bit further, a nice view of the Continental Divide. Many hikes there. Some in that area starting at Chautauqua and other trailheads that give you 2000 ft gains, but starting... More

This is a great place to visit. The drive up Baseline Road is pretty, and the views of the city from here are gorgeous. The smells of the pine trees, the serenity of the location, the views, and how close this is to Boulder makes this a worthwhile place to come. We enjoy coming up here at night and looking... More

I have been visiting Boulder since the 80s and the town is like visiting an old friend. It is always critical to get an appreciation from seeing an area from a different perspective and view. Take Baseline road past Chautauqa park and keep driving until you get to the Flagstaff summit. Lots of walking trails, great scenery and perfect for... More
