My son was checking out the University of Colorado in Boulder for college. A local guide suggested sunrise on Flagstaff Mountain.
It was a beautiful fun ride and different vantage points as you ascended up. At the top at Artist’s Point you can see the...More
We drove to the top of this mountain. It was a fairly easy drive and the only scary part was meeting the bicyclists. It was difficult to pass them and give them enough room to be safe. The views from the top makes the trip...More
This isn't a really tall one as mountains go. But for hiking there are several options - or just driving up and down slowly is wonderful. There are many pullouts for stopping to gaze or take photos. Picnic tables are available in two or three...More
I nice short drive up a windy mountain road to the amphitheater and the park for some spectacular views of the City of Boulder. Hiking trails, pic nic tables, great picture taking place. See the University of Colorado, downtown and the Flatirions from way up...More

We see people in hammocks all over Boulder and you can certainly find a spot on Flagstaff. My only comment is that the Flagstaff trail, while beautiful, gets a lot of noise from Flagstaff Rd that intertwines with it as they make their way up to Flagstaff hill. As other reviewers have said, the best place for solitude is at the top of Flagstaff where there is less traffic. There are some nice, quiet area off the other trails that meet at the top like Boy Scout, Ute, and Range View. You can also part at Realization Point just below the top of Flagstaff and take Ranger trail toward Green Mountain Lodge. Around the lodge and on up Ranger there are some nice shady places perfect for quiet hammock time.
