Take the road out of Boulder west toward Nederland and drive up through the pass for a stunning view of the terrain, mountains and streams.

We hiked to the base of flatiron 3 and loved the breathtaking views hiking back down towards Boulder. We plan to return and try all the other trails.

as soon as we got to Boulder this was the first place we went. It took a little bit of altitude adjusting for this flat lander but I made it to the Flatirons. Beautiful fall day Apple trees growing wild. A nice hike.

A great place to spend a few hours hiking. Nice open space and different trail options. Watch out for dog incidents though at the beginning of the trail.
