I love this hike because it is fun, not to challenging and perfect to bring friends and fmaily visiting the area. The first part is totally uphill then it settles off and around the flatiron. Look for raptors, rock climbers climbing the flatiron and beautiful flowers and springs.

Located in the city of Boulder the trails offer a striking view of the "Flatirons" and a gateway to many trails leading into the mountains. Areas of the trails are gentle enough for casual hikers.
