This is such a great spot to see all you want from the top of the flat irons. We were so lucky to be there during an amazing, clear day to see all that makes Boulder what it is. Worth the quick drive up the hill.

What a great place! Would have liked to have brought my nice professional camera and tripod to capture the natural beauty, but my cell phone and post edits will have to do ;) it's fun seeing the view, it's relaxing and peaceful.

In the end, I had to laugh at myself. My daughter and I wanted to hike on the Chautuaqua trail as part of ourexperience in Boulder. We parked at the trailhead and walked up to the ranger station. It was a bit of a hill up to the ranger station and then one flight of stairs to the building. I... More

This is the go-to place for hiking in the Boulder area - a great mix of out-and-back hikes and loop hikes, and a great mix of flatter hikes and steeper hikes. If you want a lung-burner, work your way straight up Bear Peak. Parking at Chautauqua can be a challenge on summer weekends, but the NCAR parking lot always has... More

So beautiful! Lots of fun hiking up the trail, even through the snow. Beautiful view of the ranges and the city. Friendly for animals to walk through as well, easy parking too.

If you are in the Boulder area the flatirons are a must see! Although they are hard to miss from almost anywhere in the area they seem to reveal themselves more and more as you approach. I would highly recommend pairing the sightseeing with a hike around Chautauqua park, or even better, seeing the free science and weather exhibits at... More

The flatirons are iconic, great hiking, great views and all close to the city. They should be a national treasure
