Trail
“15 minutes away. Take a picture of “The Flatirons,” the iconic backdrop of the city. Hike the Flatirons or the Royal Arch. Stop by the Ranger Cottage first to obtain a trail map. Parking is easy and free during the week and you may want to take the shuttle bus along Baseline Road on weekends.”
