“Great views from here!”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

I would have to say that it is a nice payoff (great views) for the easy drive and short hikes around the top of the mountain. It of course can be crowded at times - especially in fabulous weather. But if you have a mixed age group in tow, this is a pleasant trip that accommodate most everyone.

I hike up and down Flagstaff frequently. Awesome workout with terrific views at every turn. This is also a fun drive. Oh, and don't forget the rock climbing!

“Nice views”
Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

Worth a stop while in the Boulder area. While road to the top is closed for season, short walk up pays off with terrific scenery and gorgeous views. Easy walk or all ages.

“Great Vistas, Great Trails, Need Parking Pass”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

I got to go up Flagstaff Mountain twice this summer, once for a class reunion hike, and once to take a foreign visitor up for a view of Boulder. The hiking trails vary from flat to very steep, some with rock climbing opportunities. All are well marked and well-traveled-they can even be crowded. Our group arrived to park at 8:30 a.m., which is after the gung-ho Boulderites are already back down & off to breakfast. Beware if you drive a non-Boulder registered car. You will need to purchase a day parking pass, or risk getting ticketed & towed. I forgot this on the 2nd visit, and had to stick with the car while my guest went out to the overlooks. On a clear day, you can see for miles to the north & south, as well as the brilliant hues of the flagstone buildings on the CU campus. A great vista of Boulder, and a fun hiking area.
