This was the first place that my supervisor for my summer internship took me during my first summer in Boulder. I've since taken many other visiting friends up here to see the beautiful views of Boulder and the Front Range. It's a lovely place for to picnic or to enjoy the views and the crisp air. The drive up is... More

Stop at the supermarket deli or make your own lunch, there are several places to pullover and park. Walk around and smell the pines. The night lights of the city are fantastic, and, if possible, time your trip to the full moon! The moon coming over the horizon is SOMETHING ELSE!

A short drive from the center of Boulder, this park has magnificent views, quiet, meditative trails, sweet spots to picnic and relax.

The Flagstaff road runs from magical Boulder to the unique geology of Coal Creek Canyon. A ways up Flagstaff, past the restaurant of the same name(world class dining), there is a turn off; a large parking area. Park, and for a very short walk, the overlook there, looking to the west, is a panoramic view of the continental divide. And... More

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
