Georgous hike. Many different trails and options. Pretty good incline on some of them with worthy views at the top. Can walk there from Pearl street. Parking can be a little tricky but lots of side streets.

Beautiful and breath taking! Super friendly staff in the information house can provide plenty of advice about the trail options. Parking was crowded- ended up on the street. Spent about half a day on the trails and could have done more! Lots of friendly people and dogs on the trails. The woods quarry overlook was great!

We had to wait for a table at the Dining Hall so had time to walk around. This areas is magnificent. There are many trails from here to the Flatirons. Next time I will bring my hiking shoes and check them out. Saw lots of people walking the trails.

The path was beautiful, and not too crowded early in the morning. The views of the mountains and the city were unbeatable!

First, don't go on a weekend. There was no parking for blocks around. The mountains and meadows are gorgeous. Lots of people sitting out on blankets or hammocks with family and dogs.

I work in Boulder and never get enough of the gorgeous view. If your an experienced climber or just enjoy hiking Chautauqua is great for all outdoors activities. If you love photography its definitely one for the bucket list.

Arrived somewhat early at 0900 Sunday. Only a few parking lot spots available but more on the streets. Bring clothing for the weather. If it isn't dry bring boots as it will be muddy. Venue: Ranger Station. Good info here and restrooms. Hiking: Signs posted at trail junctions and start . Not the best signage if going to the upper... More

Stumbled upon this beauty on my way to the Flatirons. Even though it was quite overcast, the meadow area was beautiful.Only went about 1/2 a mile and up 500ft. I imagine it is spectacular when the sun is shining.
