Description

Depending on where your desk is... hike up Boulder Creek (West) until you get to Eben G Fine park. Find the end of Arapahoe Street and the trail starts in a dirt road (a shared driveway) for 100 yards until the proper trail starts. Don't stop until you hit the lookout - which can be a good challenge! There are a few great options to continue on up Flag or loop back through Chautauqua park (depends on your lunch break). Cheers and enjoy.
