  • If I lived in Boulder I would be up here every weekend. Such an easy convenient drive directly into awesome views and great trails.
  • Quick, beautiful views of Boulder and surrounding mountains. Could get tricky as to whether going to the summit or “top-top.” Very touristy and many professional photography sessions taking place. Many bike riders and winding roads.
  • You can pretty much drive to the summit.
  • This is worth going to. Nice solitude a f views from here.
  • I biked up here. It was a lot of work, but it was worth it!!
