Flat Irons

Just East of the Rockies lies the Flat Iron Foothills. We have been there a few times for easy hikes and beautiful scenery. Shawn, Chloe and Olive have come with us. There are hundreds of windy trails, tons of dogs and a stream to go tubing down. The best access is though Boulder.

The Flatirons were named by a pioneer woman after the flat irons that she used to press her clothing. Their shape jutting out of the ground reminded her of this. It is said that these rocks are more than 290 million years old...
Bring a picnic, make the drive and wear your hiking shoes!
