Ascent Trip Report

With the high peaks still under snow, the lower elevation foothills hikes are a nearby, convenient option for a good hike. Flagstaff was the last of Boulder's notable skyline I'd yet to summit, so a chilly April day was a perfect chance for a simple hike. From the Chapman Drive trailhead, one can make a good loop linking the Chapman, Tenderfoot, Range View, and Ute trails with great views west the entire hike, looking over the valleys below and the Indian Peaks on the horizon. Finding the actual Flagstaff summit required a little walk off trail and a little bit of looking. It's among a wide hill in the trees, so the best views tend to be on the trails themselves.
