great tough hike

Super simple trail with some nice views my elementary school daughter enjoyed it but we would’ve liked a little more challenge

Beautiful place. Water in the creek was very low, so bring plenty just in case. Keep food protected. Raccoons and skunks were on the prowl.

look for big Cairns up high on cliffs to split off Boulder canyon at the correct spot to find the trail up

the map ends but there appears to be a way to the true peak

My trip was crazy. So, first you have this boring stretch of dirt paths, but then you get to really rocky areas. Then, you get to boulders and your suppose to climb between 8 inches of space between 2 rocks. And you climb around 8 feet. It's hard but I got to the top. 12 year old completed it but it definitely is hard. Dogs can go on the first part, where there's dirt, but it's much harder after that.
After we started going down, we got lost. We tried to go on a different place because we went off the trail on accident. But in the process I scraped basically every place on my body. We finally made it down.
Bring at least 5 water bottles if you plan to go to the top!

This was definitely a rewarding Hike, difficult but worth it once your on top of Flatiron and see the beauty all around you. You have to be careful and look at your surroundings because you will find yourself on harder trails, but eventually will find your way to the top.
