Hike the Enchanted Mesa Trail

Colorado McClintock Trailhead

Added by

Less than an hour from Boulder, this short loop hike offers views of the Flatirons and Chautauqua Park.

Start out on McClintock Trail for 0.7 miles (this particular stretch can get muddy), before switching over to Enchanted Mesa Trail. To add a scenic 0.4 miles to your hike, take the Quarry Loop by turning right at the stone cabin, then following the steps up to the quarry, where you can overlook the park.
