Driving up to the Flatirons is an absolutely gorgeous drive anytime of the year! Drive slow as you will often times see deer around the roadway. The hiking trails are great and you should take time to go to the top and visit the Amphitheater.

We were pretty disappointed that some of the trails did not allow dogs, also in order to have your dog off leash, you have to go to a “mandatory” sight & sound class for three days???? No thank you! Not impressed with this at all,...More

The Flatirons aren't just a highlight of visiting Boulder, they help define the area. They invite and welcome you into the mountains.

Just up from Chautauqua Lodge, the road (Broadway) takes you up a winding ride to the top of the Flatirons. From there you will have an expansive view of Denver and the endless plains. I expect that the views at sunrise are spectacular, though we...More

We hiked up to see the flat irons, or should I say as close as our time would allow, and they were amazing to see up close. I wish we had time to go to the top but we didn’t have enough time. Take plenty...More

The flatirons are what makes Boulder so beautiful. Great hiking nearby too. May is the best time, nice & green.

We hiked the Flatirons and what an amazing site to see. It was a hot one- not what we were expecting since a few days before that it was cold and rainy. Beautiful sites, some wild life to see. Lots of people but yet so...More

A mall hike, lots of fellow hikers and runners. Close to the city but that also makes for a very well traveled path.

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.
