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 went there was no snow cover but people were still slipping (usually unintentionally). Take a... More

I think that the road to, and infra-structure atop Flagstaff were constructed during the Civ. Conserv. Core era. It seems that there is that kind of "history" there. I first went up Flagstaff in the early 1970's on foot, as there was (and still is, i would suspect) a running race (5 miles) from bottom to top. I also went... More

It is a bit of a drive up a "hill" on the outskirts of Boulder, CO but well worth it. The view is special anytime, but begin at cocktail hour and extend through dinner. It will be memorable!

Amazing view, we booked for 6.30 a little early for us yes but this enabled us to see the view in daylight, twilight and at night. The food was very tasty, maybe a little more vegetarian selection might have been good for one of us but what we had was delicious. Cannot fault the staff they were excellent staff.

If you've never been to the mountains, you will be impressed by the views, however if you are looking for truly spectacular views I would suggest Rock Mountain National Park instead. One pro is that you can easily drive up, so if you're just interested in the views instead of the hike this would be a good excursion

Looking for a gorgeous view and photo op? Just go. Winding, fun roads to drive on and plenty of stopping areas for pictures. Even precious wildlife if you're lucky.

My husband had been to the top of this mountain 40 years ago and wanted to travel down memory lane, so up we went. I'm so glad he showed me this beautiful place. The ride up on the narrow winding road is lovely. Not a bad drive at all. The view at the top is well worth your time. Just... More
