What an amazing climb. Exhausting, but worth the views. A few different destinations to choose from...and once you reach the top you can continue on.

The Flatirons are beautiful at any time of day, but I would recommend going in the morning. The morning light on them is much more spectacular than the sunset.

Nice drive up and views from the top. Got to see where my husband grew up. Boulder sure has changed over the years.

Loved hiking here...lots of trails from easy to difficult. National Park Service provides bathroom facilities which are amazingly clean at almost every trailhead. Beautiful area!

We drove to NCAR and parked in their large lot. This hike was a great first day in the mountains at altitude hike to get sea level lungs used to the altitude. The views from many spots in the trail are absolutely spectacular. Taking time to appreciate the views and snap photos also gave my lungs a chance to recover... More

Easy drive up to a wonderful view. Fun to park and take a short hike up to see the varied terrain of the front range. A must see.

Start at the Chataqua. Great hike through trees and fields and along streams. Many, many birds, saw an Abert's squirrel. The Flat Irons are very cool formations. Couple water crossings can be challenging depending on the weather. Have to see it.

There is evidence here to demonstrate a creation not by chance. The entire front range is geologically called out here with much strata from the orogenic action Care should be taken around here.

Arrive by 7:00 am for easy access to park. There is a beautiful view from the bottom and maps that show the different trails. The trails are well marked. You can take a nice stroll through the lower trails or go for it and take one of the Flatiron trails to the top. Beautiful scenery and kind people everywhere. A... More
