You do not have to be a hiker to enjoy the flatirons. You can drive all the way to the top and there're several places to stop a long the way. Next time I'm in town I'll be spending a day hiking here for sure!

The Boulder Flatirons are beautiful and offer a great backdrop for town. But they offer more than views. From technical rock climbing to gentle paths it offers something for everyone.
