Flagstaff mountain is a short, beautiful 20 minute drive up from Boulder. This is definitely worth a visit for the view. I loved the view so much that I chose the Sunrise Amphitheater as my wedding ceremony location. My guests were all blown away by the views - there's not much need for extraneous decoration when nature does the job.... More

This is a great place to see scenic views for miles around, and down into Boulder. Also, there are photo opportunities everywhere. Worth taking the time to check it out for sure.

Sunrise Amphitheatre is about 10 minutes up Flagstaff mountain....so perfect for my son's outdoor wedding. The view is gorgeous and there are many good areas for pictures with a variety of backgrounds. My son purchased parking passes for guests which were handed out as guests arrived.

We didn't mean to head to Boulder but during our visit to Denver multiple national parks were still closed. Boulder turned out beautiful and this attraction is so underrated. Web searches and trip advisor do not show it as a top attraction. However, we decided to give it a try and drive up the mountain there is a small park... More

Our friends, who live in Colorado, took us here. Amazing views, including seeing the continental divide. The Amphitheater overlook was also excellent. Had a lunch picnic as well.

Realization Point! Do this hike! Sunrise Amphitheater! Check it out! Great place for impromptu cook outs to the organized picnic. The views are stunning. This location never disappoints. Take care on the drive up and down because you will encounter the disrespectful biker crossing the line as they go mock 20. Consistently I meet bikers disobeying the road laws because... More

It's a fairly short - but very curvy - drive to the top of Flagstaff Mountain. The road to the summit was closed when we were there but even so the overlook along the way offers spectacular views of Boulder and the surrounding area.

Anybody who's ever spent time in Boulder loves Flagstaff Mountain for a quick way to give out-of-towners a "mountain experience." Once you drive to the top there are plenty of little hikes and spectacular views of Boulder.

Vistas all the way to Kansas on a clear day. RIght above Boulder. Drive is a little daunting for a flat-lander but take it slow and you'll do finel. Roads paves and in good shape. Great scenic pull out facing Boulder and East not very far up. (used to be a great place to "park" when we were growing up).

I would suggest going during off season or weekdays in the summer. Very popular and crowded on summer weekends.
