Enchanted Mesa Professional Reviews and Guides

"Awesome views and rugged terrain combine beautifully on one of the most challenging and rewarding day hikes in the Boulder area. Though not quite a mountaineering adventure, the challenging terrain of Gregory Canyon demands focus, and you’ll work hard to"

"The Enchanted Mesa / McClintock Nature Trail loop offers some of the best of Boulder hiking. It's an easy, well-maintained trail (spiced with a few steep sections, both up and down) that meanders through a lovely wooded area and features great views of the high plains and the famous Flatirons. The loop is ideal for young ones, given its length and relatively easy inclines."
