Description

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

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

Short Hike: Short and steep hike from several downtown trailheads.

Family Friendly: Kids love climbing rocks - but careful - these are tall and can be slippery!

They look prettier from far away... although we did see some dude bouldering. Nice place to sit and enjoy the views :)
