Boulder’s iconic park, Chautauqua is looking so beautiful right now. Color is blooming all over the fields with splashes of purple and yellow. The grass is green and the sky is blue! The trails are just begging to be explored. You can hike the Mesa Trail or hike the Royal Arch Trail. These trails also lead to some wonderful rock climbing at the Flatirons. You can’t go wrong with any trail at this place. Warning: The parking lot does fill up quickly especially on weekends. That also means the trails are busy. I suggest you check out this beautiful location that offers so many great hikes.
