If you live in Boulder it's a nice little drive. My mother came from out of town and she absolutely loved it wonderful views
One of my happy places. Especially since I get so profusely humbled by the Redwall every time. Wow,the strong fingers and that have graced these boulders...
Nice scenic drive.
The drive up is easy and enjoyable. There are bathrooms at the top and plenty of trails. We were feeling “lazy” on the day we went and didn’t have to exert ourselves past our desired limit. There is a nature center which has some pretty nice project, preserved animals, the amphitheater is historic and has a great view. Overall a great experience for families with children of any age and people without children.
Awesome views. Great place to just get away and chill. Will return someday.
