So beautiful
Mar 2021 • Family
We drove up to the summit and paid $5 for a day of parking. The drive alone was beautiful but the views from the top were incredible! Boulder recently had a big snow and it was beginning to melt. It made it a little difficult to navigate on foot and it made me nervous how close young teenagers were getting to the edge, but all was well. We did see several park rangers during our visit and that was comforting.

Fantastic Hiking
Dec 2019
Fantastic Hiking. You even get to go downhill but remember, you will have to come back up the hill. Try the Gregory Canyon Trail.

Insane views

My hubs insisted we drive up this mountain. All along stops and views forever. Watch out for bicycles. People were also walking crossing the road.

Great View and Trails
Jul 2020
Went up to Tenderfoot trail with family last week and it was well worth the short drive from downtown Boulder. We drove up at 10AM and parking lots were starting to clear out. By the time we left about noon, parking lots were only half full. Loved the views and trails were well maintained. At least later in the morning, I drove as slow as I felt comfortable driving and felt no pressure to go faster.

Great spot for a quick hike
Jul 2020
Drove waaay up to get to the Tenderfoot Trail. Easy 1.5 mile out and back and some really incredible views. Plenty of parking, trail was well-marked. Recommend for people who want to get outside but aren't conditioned to more strenuous hiking.

Awesome view of Boulder
Apr 2019
The drive up Flagstaff is scary for those not acquainted with hairpin turns especially with a local on your tail. Growing up in Boulder, this was a great spot to come and it was free entertainment. Now there is a charge except for those with local plates on their vehicle. This is to cut down on traffic I guess. Anyway, the view is awesome from up in the flatirons. Do, pay for it, you won't be sorry!

My Favorite View In Colorado
Dec 2019 • Family
A fantastic view from the top. This is my favorite view from a Colorado mountain top so far. Very assessable by car.

A Good Alternative to Mt. Evans
Oct 2019 • Family
On a recent trip to Denver for business, had only a couple of hours of down time, so wanted to get into the outdoors on a very nice Autumn day. With temps in the mid 60’s I couldn’t pass by the opportunity. Pike’s Peak and Mt. Evan’s would be my first choice, but not enough time for those. A quick look at Trip Advisor and my problem was solved. I was already in Bolder and up pops the alternative and only 5.5 miles from my location. A 10 minute drive to reach the location reveals this somewhat hidden gem. Allot about 90 minutes for this quick and enjoyable outdoor fix to reach the summit and back down, with 20-30 minutes to walk around and enjoy the view once you reach the summit. My times were based on being there at 3 pm on a Monday afternoon. The place was nearly deserted and we had the mountain to ourselves
