Chautauqua Park and the Flatirons are beautiful and if you go to Boulder, you can't miss visiting the park and Flatirons at least once. Great hiking, beautiful views of the city below and abundant wildlife. Lots of photo opps and great exercise too!

Visited Flatirons on a Monday the week before Memorial Day around 11:00a hoping to have less people hiking the trails. Nope! Came across several groups of school students on end of the year school class trips. Thus, the kids were all talking and running around which kinda of took away of the enjoyment of being out in nature. It had... More

Wonderful view and photo opportunities. Great for hiking. Parking can be a challenge so walk or bike if you can!

There are so many places around here to hike and I find the Flatirons too crowded. On a weekend, it feels like a freeway (you pass someone, someone else passes you); especially difficult when it is muddy in the spring and there is less trail for you (and the runners) to share. Probably best for people who live in Boulder... More

Caught a few glimpses of the views and they were really cool. The clouds rolled back in and we didn't see much after that but the drive was fun.

That first glimpse of the Flatirons as one enters Boulder whets the appetite to visit Chautauqua from which to hike to the top and beyond. Moderately fit is all that is needed

Be well prepared because it is a demanding hike but very rewarding. It was raining in may, so you need good hiking shoes and a raincoat

The Flatirons offer a variety of hikes of varying difficulty on well marked trails. It has a bit of it all: woods, interesting rock formations, vistas, flat walks all the way to pretty strenuous uphill hikes. The only real downside is the number of people, especially on weekends.

The iconic Flatirons are the symbol of Boulder. They are beautiful from the ground, as well as driving up the mountains to looks at.

The Royal Arch trail was closed during our visit, but we were able to get a hike in on other trails. It was busy, but not overwhelming. It was fun to hike in the shadow of these iconic formations. Am already looking forward to a return visit to hike the rest!
