Lovely foothills loop with great views west of the Rockies at Mays Point and then it’s forested the rest of the loop. No dogs allowed on the boyscout section.

Perfect for younger children. Nice rocks to climb about half wayin. My grandchildren ages 4 and 6 loved it.

I’ve never had this issue with an All Trails trail before. We followed exactly where the trail was to be and it was not there. We wandered around and finally picked it up. Looks like some work needs to be done on this one

Nice easy trail on top of Flagstaff that leads you back to the parking lot at the top of Flagstaff Summit Rd. Could be considered a loop if you just walk back along the road to where you started.
Sometimes Flagstaff Summit Rd is closed so you will have to park further down and walk up the road to the trailhead. That is harder than Boy Scout Trail itself.
