Such a beautiful place for either a short hike to take some great pictures of the Flatirons or a nice long hike to see this park with all of its beauty all day. There’s different trails to go through. There is paid parking nearby but also read carefully because it may be free on certain days or hours. Will definitely go back when we’re back in Boulder.
A most serene and perfect place to eat for nature lovers as you sit among the trees, the many blossoming flowers and under the stars in the evenings. One of the most romantic places to spend time with someone you care about. And the grounds are simply enchanting!
