This short loop features views of the Flatirons, as you pass by meadows and pines.
From the parking lot, take South Flatiron Vista Trail for 2.4 miles, where you'll cross onto North Flatiron Vista Trail. In 1 mile, take the connector trail back to the trailhead. To shorten the loop to 2 miles, hike South Flatiron for just 1 mile to Prairie Vista Trail, which leads back to the connector in another mile.

Definitely agree with a previous reviewer-- veer to the right at the entrance for those mountain views! There are a number of trail options and lengths, definitely check the maps! A fairly easy hike, good for beginners and children.
Start On The Right
Parking lot available. Parking is $5 - cash only. However if your vehicle is registered in Boulder county then it is free. Once you enter through the gates, I suggest veering towards the right to capture the mountain views. We started on the left side and our backs were to the mountains when we did the loop. It is not steep - fairly flat. Lots of bikers and walkers. Beautiful view.
