First trip to Boulder to visit family with young children. Great hikes for tiny legs with wonderful photo opportunities. Enjoyed watching young military recruits train, threw some snow balls, and enjoyed the amazing views. A must see for those with only a short time to...More

A fabulous drive to the top of the mountain with some amazing views as far as Denver and beyond. Beware if you are not a resident of Boulder County you need a Daily pass to stop at the viewing stations at $5.

Don't bother driving up the mountain unless you want to be caught in a traffic jam with no place to park and enjoy the scenery.

Stunning views, we had fresh snow fall. Wow. If you love nature, love scenic views, love a still feeling, this is for you. I think most will appreciate the view.

This place is a short drive from Boulder and has fantastic views of both Boulder and the snow covered Rockies. There were a zillion people there, including hikers, bikers, and some questionable drivers, however. I went on a Saturday though, so I guess I should...More

Loved visiting Flagstaff Mountain. Recommend 4 wheel drive and a good camera. Spectacular views at every turn, bikers who you'd swear have motors to make them go uphill as they do, water rushing down the mountain next to gorgeous bike & walking paths - what's...More

Great place to catch some lovely views of Boulder and surrounding area. Road is steep and narrow in places so proceed carefully. Can be windy. Good place to take out of town guests and family.

There is a large illuminated star from mid-November to early January. You can hike to the star from Flagstaff Road. Some caveats -- parking is scarce (definitely NOT at the restaurant), the slope is steep and when there is snow, very very slippery. When we...More
