Mt. Sanitas was the highlight. Make sure to inquire before hiking as we had to change course on a lot of our old favorite trails.

My husband and I just returned from a 4 day weekend trip to Boulder and this hike was one of the things we were most looking forward to... it did not disappoint! I have to admit it was a pretty tough hike for 2 forty-somethings coming from very flat South Florida though. We had to take a lot of short... More

We hiked the Flatirons #1 & 2 trail. The trail was almost straight up with few switchbacks. The parking lot and trails were very crowded and it was like a highway. This was a Saturday morning so it would explain some of the crowds I suppose. The trail was beautiful and lead to a cool rock peak and if it... More

Very nice-drive up the windy road to the top. Stop and walk out on to the rocks. Great for photos and a nice shot of the University below.

Climbed the 1st Direct several times. Love the 1,100ft of vertical gain. Run-out slab baby! Carry your approach shoes and don't bail early. Several false summits before you top out.

It was a challenging hike up to the flatirons themselves, but it was was well worth it for the natural beauty and the view. Hiking up there really gives a person a sense of scale - those are some big cliffs!

If you ever find yourself in Boulder, you have to come to Chautauqua Park and do one of the hikes to see the Flatirons formations. There are many hiking routes for people of all fitness levels and the park rangers are very very helpful in selecting a suitable route for you. In addition to breathtaking wonders of nature, there are... More

Beautiful scenery, a great way to enjoy the outdoors with either an easy hike or as challenging as you want to make it. Our 2 little dogs can hike with us to most places and you'll see many people hiking with their pets. Just be sure to bring them plenty of water,
