    New question here. Off Topic: Flatirons

    I was wondering if any one knows what road leads up to the flatirons trail to hike them? Since i been here for over a year i would love to hit them up on a nice day.

    Do i need go hit up Boulder or what?

    You can take Table Mesa (which is also known as South Boulder Road to the east) up to NCAR, park and hike the southern end of the Bouolder Mountain Parks that include the Flatirons.

    You can also take Baseline Road up to Chautauqua Park.

    I like doing the hike from Chataqua it is pretty easy to find Chataqua, how ever parking can be difficult. Where are you coming from?

    Tons of trailheads to get to various jumping off points in the flatirons. Chautauqua is by far the most popular, but parking isn't that big of a deal since you can always park on the street (baseline, 9th, etc) which is only a 2 minute walk from the TH.

    Here's a list with directions to all the trailheads: http://www.wwwright.com/climbing/min...gLocations.htm

    And here's a trailmap: http://www.bouldercolorado.gov/www/o...ce/swtrmap.htm

    Lot's more links there too
