Chautauqua - Review
The park is situated a little away from the city of Boulder and is known for the stunning view of its surrounding. You can get to see the high Flatirons from here. Along with the scenic view, the place also has various short trails where hikers and joggers can go and spend some time. Near the park lies the famous Chautauqua auditorium, established in 19th century and considered to be a National Historic landmark in Boulder. The Auditorium had been a premier platform known for hosting performances of varied artists, both native and international. That, coupled with the auditorium’s unique architecture and brilliant acoustics makes it a great place to stop by for an exciting night. There is also a Chautauqua Community Hall just near the building. The hall was built in 1918 to serve as a shelter for the tent residents which has been remodeled today as a event hosting platform for folks. From concerts, films to other exclusive programs, the place has it all. All of these destinations are known for its history and beauty and quite frequented by visitors throughout the year.

Chautauqua, Boulder Reviews
Nice place. Did my first and last front flip here on a snowboard. Would suggest not parking up there on weekends and just park around the big houses just north of baseline.
Beautiful mountain views just from the parking lot. Connects to the entire boulder trail system. Flatiron loop is a nice moderate hike with nice views and shaded by trees. Royal Arch is a favorite but is a mile of steep ascent. My favorite is 1st and 2nd flatirons trail. This is a bit less steep than RA but is longer but beautiful view of mountain peaks further west. Make sure and continue on ten minutes past the 1st Flatiron to reach the 2nd. Alot of people turn back early and in ten minutes more could have better views.
My wife and I are visiting from Tampa and hiked to Royal Arch for the first time. The trails are well marked and maintained. I was happily surprised to see so many people using the trails. I would certainly hike this trail again if I return.
This will be the only post I write when it comes to hiking in Boulder. I am giving the trail system 5 stars. Chautauqua trail system has great hiking for anyone, hard, intermediate, easy, 1 to 20 plus miles in a day if you have the conditioning and legs for it. "I Love It." The single down side is an ever increasing number of people that come to hike and have no trail etiquette. As a long-time resident, it's becoming increasingly more disrupted by rude, inconsiderate weekenders with no concern of others hiking. This is troubling for me to see people blasting music, smoking, hiking four abreast, not picking up after their dog, circus atmosphere. I Love dogs as well. One suggestion for those strolling into town is to go online and read up on trail rules. In essence, this is simple common courtesy.
Breathtaking views of the city and the flatirons. I would recommend being there on a winter sunrise
