Stayed at Chautauqua and hiked the hills up toward the Flatirons. Two elderly folks with health issues from a location at sea level, we didn't have any excessive problems, but sounds like others do, so be aware. We had limited time, but would like to explore this area more. I understand from friends that their favorite trails were closed due... More

Must experience the size of these up close and personal. They really are so oddly protruding and enormous! The paths are great, but be prepared for the heat on a warm summers day.

Awesome view, nice paths. However, if you are from a low altitude area of the US, like from Portland....zero sea level, this short, simple hike will be hard. I enjoyed the view of the side of the Rockies and of the city of Boulder. Easy to get to from the center of the city and easy to get back on... More

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.
