  • This is an absolute must if you‘re in Boulder and the weather is good. There are hikes for all ages and fitness levels. If it‘s close to winter, you might want to bring spikes to avoid slipping on the icy amd snowy trails. I recommend the Royal Arch trail, the view from the Arch is quite staggering.

  • Open 24 hours a day, it offers good and safe hiking options in the park, unfolding amazing views of the mountain areas and the city.

  • Amazing trails and places to go and visit. Wear a Hat and Sunscreen! Great place to visit!!

  • Beautiful views but trails were much more strenuous than some of the others we went on during our trip. That being said, it is less crowded than other mountains we hiked. I would recommend going early because we went later in the day and the sun started to set quick. Ended up having to hike down with the flashlight on our phones and we weren't the most experienced hikers.

  • Great place to hike! You might see some deer on the path too :)
