2 DAY ITINERARY
1Have breakfast at the Chautauqua Dining Hall in Chautauqua Park (or elsewhere during most winter days). Take a long or short hike directly from the park. Leave the park and drive west on Flagstaff Road with several roadside overlooks. Turn off to the Sunrise Amphitheater for fantastic views across Boulder to the endless plains.
2The City of Boulder manages 144 miles of trails for hiking, biking, walking or running. And since you're here, you may as well enjoy nature's bounty. If you're up for a day hike, pack your lunch, grab lots of water and a jacket and head out on the 6 ½ mile Mesa Trail at the base of the foothills between Chautauqua Park and Eldorado Springs.
