A quick stop to see the park ranger and we were armed with several hiking options based on our ability levels. The ranger provided alternative routes in case the altitude did us in having not been in town for more than a couple days. And he was right, we needed the alt routes! Can be crowded; go on a weekday... More

At lunch at the Dining Hall then went for a three hour hike to the Flatirons -- what a great way to spend a Saturday!

What a refreshing place to take a hike near town, and really feel like you are away from it all. I went in the middle of the day, it was perfect!

Very easy access. Lots of people and dogs - which I like but others might not. A plethora of trails so you can find the right one. Steep incline in the beginning at least so be prepared. Those of us from VA aren't used to the thin air!

As novices, we were advised by our son to go to Chautauqua to complete an easy hike. You need to get there early to get a car park space.

Did some snowshoeing day hike - gorgeous and majestic. Well groomed. Amazing overlooks. Can't wait to hike again in the spring with no snow

Loved this park. It was right up against the mountains and was lovely. Would highly recommend starting your hike to the Flatirons from here. Park ranger was the most helpful fellow. He guided us on what the right hike would be for my husband and me. Thoroughly enjoyed our stop here.
