We did the flatirons 1&2 hike . Was more strenuous than I expected but well worth it. Took about 3 1/2 hours total. View is amazing from the top. Definitely bring good hiking shoes!

The Flatirons are beautiful. I love that you can take hikes and there are different levels depending on you skill level. It was chilly, but just beautiful. It’s so close to town, you can go have lunch when you’re done hiking. I really liked the...More

We were there much later than April when the weather was very warm and all the walks were available. Looking at the answers from other contributors it could be a problem or you may strike lucky. Sorry can't be helpful.
