I love Colorado and I love Boulder even more. We were trying to get to Ariste Point on Flagstaff to watch the sunset but the road was closed. EVEN BETTER! We went higher and discovered Lost Gulch Overlook on Flagstaff. It is a beautiful and overlooks Boulder and the mountains. It was a great "accidental" find. The roads are fun and zippy so be careful when driving. You have to make a bit of a climb out to see the view so if you're afraid of heights beware! It's worth the short climb/hike and I'd recommend going up for sunset or sundown.

Boulder is the place for outdoors. The trails are all well maintained and easy to follow, though some more demanding that others! Flag staff is steeper but very 'do'able for moms and pops. We had two very outdoorsy boys go through school here and they show us the best spots to go. This one is definitely worth the effort and has amasIng views.

The small areas off the road to picnic and of course the views around each corner.

The bikers on the road are scary - especially since you cant see them coming/going or down hill whizzing by....a dangerous situation. Bikers beware...

This is popular biking route. Rewarding exercise with good vistas all along the road. There is also a good hiking trail that leads to the top. Mule deer are frequently seen along this trail. Good picnic areas are abundant.

Great sunset, a little scary for those of us who are freaked out by open heights - especially after a couple of yummy CO microbrews.
