The Flatirons, which there are 5, but 3 get ALL the attention, are located in Boulder, at Chautauqua Park. Super busy ANY time of day. Try to get a spot in parking spot, if not, you'll see where everybody else is parking on side. Steep hike, plus elevation. Royal Arch is nice anytime. Little icey/muddy in early spring. Very popular.

This is a great hike and leads to some nice views and the tranquil nature experience. It is a popular spot and there are a lot of other people around, but you can still have a very relaxing time. There are the options for some very difficult hikes, or it can be quite easy. If you're in the area, definitely... More

We had a wonderful trek up the Chautauqua trail. But the view of the flatirons itself is simply stunning!

The only thing stopping me from giving this a 5/5 is the trails are not the best marked, we got lost off one trail and hiked up the opposite side of the mountain for 50 min before reconnecting to the trail, thank goodness for google maps! But it was beautiful and a good workout so I loved it!!

Getting up close to the flatirons is a special experience but the view from all around town is always awe inspiring. See the flatirons live with the http://boulderflatironcam.com and plan your visit.

With large number of trailheads, the Flatirons are the most frequented hiking spot in Boulder. It can be crowded on weekends due to its proximity to the Denver metro area and amazing views.

have been visited my daughter in Boulder for 5 years and the view of the Flatirons is breathtaking for me - be sure to take the time to actually digest that view

If you are going there to commune quietly with nature, you'll be disappointed. Everyone hikes the flatirons. It's crowded and noisy. If you like to hike and don't mind loud talkers, it's the place for you.

Boulder is a great place to hike, the flat irons have some short walks but the terrain is pretty steep for that reason I won't call them easy, but if you stay in the trail and be careful, you will be rewarded whit gorgeous views.
