Come along with naturalist Dave Sutherland for a fairly strenuous hike to the top of the Flatirons for a spectacular view of Boulder Valley. We’ll look for winter birds, ancient rocks, and keep our eyes open for Nature’s winter surprises. Meet at Chautauqua Ranger Cottage. 3 miles, 1,440’ climb. Please bring strap-on traction for footwear (e.g. micro-spikes or Yak-tracks) since the trail may be very slick and icy.
