First of all, if you decide to climb this peak, this is an 1100+ foot ascent from Baseline Road or Eben Fein Park, so be aware of your abilities if you want to get to the top that way. (Before you Fourteener addicts scoff at my mentioning that, yeah, I've been up most of those also, and you and I both know the problems caused when someone gets summit fever and outclimbs their training.) The trail is class 1 (well developed, non-techical) all the way, so you won't have trouble with that aspect, but it does require that you not be badly out of shape.
But you can also drive to the top during the summer, and the views of the Rockies are spectacular. Be sure to visit the historical amphitheater with the huge American flag floating above it that is visible from Boulder (Flagstaff Mountain - get it?), and poke around the rest of the park at the top to see what is there.
For peak-baggers who absolutely have to touch the summit - It is unmarked, and atop a rock formation in a wooded area above the nature trail at the top of the park. The spot is marked on an online trail map though not well enough to guide you there, so I assume that it is okay to visit it, but you are off-trail so tread lightly. A GPS can help you choose the summit from a couple of possibilities.
There is no fee to visit if you hike up from Chautaqua, or Eben Fein Park, but there are parking fees if you choose to drive.
