Overview

Perched right over town, this set of rocks is a great destination to play on some rocks and watch the sun set over Boulder.

With care, you can summit all of them - up to 50' with shear faces on the west side.

Long Walk: Short and steep hike from several downtown trailheads.

Family Friendly: Kids love climbing rocks - but careful - these are tall!
