If you are in Boulder, you need to hike the flat irons. Some of the trails are tough, but views are incredible.

Very accessible trails right next to the Chautauqua Park! I'd highly recommend the Flatirons summit trail that leads you to the very top overlooking both the Boulder Valley and the Rockies as part of Rocky Mountain National Park!

This is a really interesting formation to see. We just took a short walk here but there are adventurous people climbing these.

Drive past these every day. There is a pull over on Hwy 93 between Golden and Boulder where people stop and take pictures. The rising Sun at your back makes for beautiful scenery.

There's a few trails all originating from the same place. They're all pretty mellow but there are some ups so be ready for a few long steady inclines. We saw quite a few deer and two bears!! This was our first trip on this trail...More
