Brand new trailhead and trail up to the fork for flatirons/royal arch or bluebell mesa that is wider and flattened out. Heavy traffic people and dogs on the weekends but beautiful under the flatirons as always and great views of Boulder and foothills around.

This is a short yet relatively steep hike that takes you to a couple of other different trails. Good for a quick workout, looking forward to taking the trail further next time.

Very nice. My Aussie was hot and we had to stop in the shade twice but we had plenty of water to douse him with. Water...that's what I missed. Would have loved a trickling stream or pond even but it's a dry hike. Beautiful nonetheless
