We did the flatirons 1&2 hike . Was more strenuous than I expected but well worth it. Took about 3 1/2 hours total. View is amazing from the top. Definitely bring good hiking shoes!

The Flatirons are beautiful. I love that you can take hikes and there are different levels depending on you skill level. It was chilly, but just beautiful. It’s so close to town, you can go have lunch when you’re done hiking. I really liked the...More

It's the mountains, what more can you say? You have a great view of the flatirons all the way in and you can simply sit back in the Boulder area and take in the views.

Fun day hike with great views. Lots of trails for all skill levels, from kids in strollers to advanced climbing with full rock gear.

Loved these trails. They were snow capped when we went in January at 35 degrees, The views are just breathtaking, the walk was not too steep, but definitely a great workout.

My husband & I hiked these for the second time. We park at Chataqua Park for free & hike from there. We love the 1st & 2nd flat iron trail because we can pretty much reach the top where other trails don't go as high...More

The Flatirons are situated on the very east side of the Rocky Mountain near Boulder, CO. Scenic enough, but the higher Rockies lie further west. Not much snow to speak of this January, so the mountains were still rather "scruffy." Nice pleasant drive and plenty...More

There are windy narrow roadways leading to the flatiron Views but well worth it. Lots of well marked trails to choose from. It’s the best place to hike while you’re in Boulder. You don’t have to be a hiker to enjoy the scenery and nature....More

It was icy on the way up into the mountain. Definitely need hiking shoes/boots. Once you get up into the Flat Irons there was less ice because of less travel. There is a great view of Boulder and the mountains are gorgeous. easy hike

There is street parking that's free if you want to start your walk earlier. Talk to the ranger/docent at the visitor center. He or she will advise. There are definitely flat trails in the meadows that are very pleasant... More

We were there much later than April when the weather was very warm and all the walks were available. Looking at the answers from other contributors it could be a problem or you may strike lucky. Sorry can't be helpful.
