Great trails and amenities right in Boulder! Prepare for crowds.
Nov 2021
Went early in the morning on a few weekdays. The parking lots were nearly full by 8am and we selected trails to avoid the crowds. Hiking was beautiful with great views of the Flatirons, Boulder, and Denver out on the Plains. The final few hundred yards back to the trailheads were jammed with people when leaving around 10-11am.

Breathtaking Vistas & Formations
Nov 2021
One of the most spectacular city views in the country. The dramatic rock outcroppings as well as the hiking trails will afford life-long memories.

A must for any naturalist, nature lover, or hiker visiting in Boulder. I'm not sure of avid climbers are even allowed to scale the fronts but the trails below are awe-inspiring.

Take a lot of water

The hike was beautiful! It was pretty steep, and with the altitude I got tired pretty quickly. Definitely do-able for all ages though if you like being active.

Great hike

Parking at the CHATAUQUA PARK can be a challenge. We parked at the free shuttle lot a mile away but walked it easily for extra steps. Lots of great trails to choose from.

Beautiful area, well maintained trails, free

Easy access to this beautiful area. Well-maintained hiking/walking trails. Vistas up to the snow-topped mountains. Some nice wild flowers blooming in June. Access to the park is free - - can't beat that for price!

Absolutely stunning covered in snow!
Feb 2021
We hiked this after a pretty heavy snowstorm. It was gorgeous with the snow sticking to the branches of the pines and the Flat irons looming above. Really gorgeous. It is no joke though. The elevation happens quickly and with the snow, we probably should have had snowshoes or at least microspikes. It was very slippery. We also got a little lost so I would strongly recommend taking a picture of the map or getting one to bring with you. ENJOY!

The Flatirons in front of Rockies are just stunners! Truly beautiful in all seasons - but the snow on the Rockies is especially captivating.
