Flatirons, Boulder Reviews - Write a Review

  • 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!

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

  • Some busy, steep trails with nice views.

  • Awesome hike with great views. It was a bit tough!

  • I spent too many years forced to look at the boring flatirons for a couple hours everyday on my commute to work up and down I-36 and have to say I much prefer to see the ocean. Probably the reason that I now live in California and get to do just that. Go find a head of hair Flatirons.
