We stopped at the David Mesa Scenic Overlook near Boulder on the way to Estes Park. It was a nice first stop and a great view of the Flatirons with Boulder down below. It was worth the stop!

This is a beautiful place to hike, climb, and take the dogs. You can get off-leash tags in Boulder for parts of the trails, which is worth it if you have a well-behaved dog.

The Flatirons are beautiful slabs of granite that rise up to 1000' above Boulder. If you are a climber..you know. But there are great hikes and scrambles around the Flatirons. Just go to the Chateauqua parking lot, about 5 blocks from downtown and there are maps of the hikes and a small ranger station.

We visited twice during our stay and ended up spending an entire morning on the second visit. Parking is a premium so be sure to watch for a spot. The hiking provides a panoramic view of Boulder which is outstanding.

We live in the southern edge of Boulder County near Eldorado Springs. It is only a mile to the nearest trail-head along the Flatirons (with others close by as well). It is a delight to get up each morning and see soft morning sun wake up the hillside. There are dozens of trails leading up to "special spots" on the... More

The Flatirons are the western backdrop of Boulder, Colorado. This defining view is visible when approaching from Denver and provides a majestic start to the Rocky Mountains to the west of town. You can enjoy the view of the Flatirons from the Pearl Street Mall or a simple picnic or hike in Chautauqua Park. Take a longer hike on the... More

Living in TX you get to missing the Mountains. Boulder is a beautiful place if you dont mind the politics. Flatirons is one of those Colorado must sees, like the cokes ovens on the Colorado National Monument or Garden of the Gods.

You have lots of options depending on your time frame and fitness level. Always check the maps each time. I ended up off trail and it was a bit messy getting back. Views are really the best to see all of Boulder area. Parking on the main street easier than it looks even on a weekend. You'll get something Be... More

If you are visiting the Boulder area this is a must do item. The trials are both easy and difficult, so you have a choice how hard you want to push it. On this most recent trip, both of my young kids loved it because it was both exciting with great views and yet still easy enough that it was... More
