  • My favorite place in the whole world! I wish I could go visit and walk around the trails here every single day of the year. I absolutely love this place!!! :)

  • Awesome, simple hike, for beginners. Especially if you are new to the area. Parking can be an issue and if you are hiking on a weekend or a holiday it can be crowded. Overall it is a great experience and will definitely give you a break from the pretentious City life in Boulder!

  • Boulder , my hometown , spent many happy hours as a child and teen and after returning after 13 years on west coast an adult hiking , biking and enjoying the open space and awesome scenery of the Boulder , Colorado foothills and majestic Flatirons.

  • Beautiful all times of year! The best way to view this incredible formation is from an air-tour.

  • Gorgeous but way too crawled and populated! Even on a Monday it was crowded!! I go hiking to get away from people but right at noon comes herds of people and doggies! It is nice though, sometimes difficult to climb. In winter it’s very icy. But even in morning winter it was populated!! If you want peace and serenity and to be with nature you should probably go somewhere else because once all the people came wondering in, all you could hear was their dumb conversations! Sorry but this really does make me mad that I can’t enjoy the famous Flat Irons in peace unless I go at 5am!!
