    Boy Scout Trail

    • Flagstaff
      Boulder, CO 80302
    Overview 
    Amenities 

    This family-friendly hike has forest-framed views and boulder-strewn terrain ending in a breathtaking lookout at May’s Point. It becomes a fantastic kingdom of rock castles and trees for kids to scramble over, climb on and hide behind. Take a brief detour on the Sensory Trail, where signage will instruct you to smell the bark of a ponderosa pine, listen for birds of prey or take a seat to “rest and remember family and friends.”


    The trail entrance is located across from the Flagstaff Nature Center, great for children and open May-Sept., Fri-Sun, 10:30am-4pm.


    Directions: Use Google Maps for navigation to parking at “Flagstaff Nature Center.” The trail starts directly across the street from here.


    Cars not registered in Boulder County must pay a $5 parking fee at the parking lot
