Boulder is, in many ways, the perfect hikers' city: it's surrounded by the trail-laden Flatirons, has a vibrant outdoor culture and is home to Backpacker HQ. Start your Boulder hiking adventure with a trek up 8,500-foot Bear Peak, where you'll find 360 views of Boulder and beyond. Drive an hour to Rainbow Lakes for an easy day-hike that's perfect for families. Or explore the Flatirons on the 2.9-mile Flatirons Loop, in Chautauqua Park.
