Do stop at the ranger Cottage for a map and advice. We were going to do the 1st/2nd flatiron hike but decided against it when the ranger said it was "strenuous" and an out and back trail. Taking her advice we hiked Chautauqua to Flatirons Loop to Bluebell Road. It was a wonderful hike. Flatirons Loop adds .2 miles and... More

Fantastic hike! Found a great private tour guide to take us around the area and up the flat irons! Encountered a rattle snake on the path- great excitement... Also got to experience large amounts of ladybugs clustered near the too of the flat irons. The terrain was not too challenging- full of beauty and serenity. Must do activity when visiting... More

Great paths nearby, beautiful views. A geological wonder at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. A must see in Boulder, but you can't miss them.

Took a few quick hikes around these mountains during my limited time in Boulder. Look forward to returning and doing more exploring. Just beautiful.

I've lived n Boulder for a long time now and this place just gets more and more crowded. Our trail system is no exception. If you're visiting, you can't miss a quick hike up and maybe a picnic in Chautauqua Park but don't expect any communing with nature to occur. You'll be too busy dodging dogs and ducking out of...

For a novice climber, this was a really nice hike to the top of the Flatirons. The view of Boulder from the top was spectacular. Bring your camera.

This place is Majestic. To elaborate, it's full of life and adventure; whether it's the view from above, scenic walks, rock climbing, wolf spiders, burrows and hiking trails! No need to feel intimidated there's challenges for all! No matter your level of fitness, it's always a delight to slow things down and enjoy your journey without electronic devices and distractions!
