Flat Tops Wilderness Area Shuttle Hike

Flat Tops Wilderness Area Shuttle Hike Professional Review and Guide

"The unusual flat-topped mountains of the Flat Tops Wilderness Area provide a unique opportunity to hike in an alpinetundra ecological environment without a great deal of tiring elevation gain.

Most high-altitude hikes in Colorado are in very rugged terrain with little level ground. But in the Flat Tops once you have climbed above timberline there is very little up and down on the trails. A hike on the top of the Flat Tops is more of a pleasant stroll through fields of high alpine wildflowers, with panoramas of a vast treeless tundra, more like what one would expect to find in northern Canada."
