Great hiking trip this morning. Beautiful area. Gets crowded by mid morning. Bring a water. The climb is steep but well worth it.

Not only are the Flatirons incredible to look at...they're also fun to hike in! Chautauqua is a great starting point for the 1st/2nd Flatirons hike, as well as the Flatiron Loop trail. Trails all around Boulder offer amazing views of the Flatirons, too.

Put on your hiking shoes and hit the trails! This is a great place to adjust to the altitude change before you tackle a 14er or just a great way to see amazing views of Boulder.

We hiked at 8:30 a.m. on a Wednesday when it was already 80 degrees. The trail was busy but not "packed". We are experienced hikers. We did not think the trails were well marked - no blazes & at times just a river of rocks to negotiate. To get to the notch between 1st & 2nd flatiron you will be... More

My boyfriend took me on this hike as we did not want to drive very far from Denver. This place was great. Very easy and flat, we didn't do a very long hike as it was getting dark and the rain started. We did get to experience a beautiful rainbow, cool thunder and lightening ( why we left so quick)....

Growing up in Boulder makes it easy to take such wonders for granted, but these beautiful rocks and the trails that surround them are truly magnificent. Hike the trail between the 2nd and 3rd all the way to the top and take a look off the back side, stop for a snack and take a deep breath. It's magical.

It was packed and hot and there were so many people taking selfies, it wasn't even funny. We walked up only half way because it was just too busy. But cool area for sure.

The flatirons provide a lot of different trails with varying degrees of difficulty . There were lots of people on the trails, small children, dogs. Trails were clearly marked and easy to follow.

Although the 100 degree weather made it quite hot for a hike, we enjoyed the beautiful view of the Flatirons all the same. Parking can be a bit crowded. In the future, I would visit in the morning as to enjoy cooler temperatures and a hike.
