()Royal Arch Trail

單程約0.8哩,爬升高度約880呎,所需時間約2個小時,登山口在ChautauquaPark

Royal Arch當然沒有像猶他州Arches National Park裡的拱門那麼壯觀,但是這個拱門也是另人印象深刻的,尤其是俯瞰整個Boulder市區,和北望第三個Flatiron。偶而你也可看到幾個Climber正在攀爬第三個Flatiron呢!

()Flagstaff Mountain and Summit Nature Center

Flagstaff Mountain 以山頂立一根長旗桿、遠從山腳下Downtown即可遠眺旗桿上的美國國旗和科羅拉多州旗隨風飄揚而命名。Flagstaff Summit Nature Center位在山頂上,是一處讓你親近大自然和野生動物的地方,並可讓你更加了解Boulder Mountain Parks的歷史。

Flagstaff Mountain的登山口就在Baseline Road西端的山腳下,主線單程大約1.5哩,爬升1,120呎,中途還有很多支線,沿途可俯瞰Boulder全景。當然如果你不想Hiking,車子是可直開到山頂的;山頂上除了Summit Nature Center外,還有一座圓形的露天劇場(Outdoor Amphitheater)以及廣大的野餐區,並設有很多的野餐桌,是郊遊健行的最佳場所。
