What a nice back drop for Boulder. Hikes are nice here. It made a wonderfull location for a sunrise wedding. The photos with the soft morning light were amazing more »
At Chautauqua Park, parking is a tad limited & when there on a Sunday pretty crowded, but lots of room, even in the rain. Plenty of room to speed out & picnic. Decent trails to hike & gorgeous view more »
1st/2nd flatiron trail is closed Monday - Thursday 8am-4:30pm until Fall for repairs. The flatiron loop trail is still open.
The views here are absolutely STUNNING. Great for camping , hiking or just taking photos
