“Experience awesome views and dense douglas-fir forest on this easy run.”— Tom Robson
Due to its easily accessed nature, this route can get very crowded - especially on a nice Summer day.
From Boy Scout, head south on Ute Trail, then make an immediate right onto Range View. Aptly named, Range View provides excellent views of the Indian Peaks as it follows the west side of Flagstaff Mountain. Keep a sharp lookout for birds of prey as the trail returns back to Realization Point - they tend to frequent this area.
From Realization Point, turn left (north), on Ute Trail. Ute skirts the summit of Flagstaff Mountain (7,283 feet) and ends at the Flagstaff Summit Rd. This trail was named to honor the Ute Indians.
From here, turn right onto the road which will take you back to your car. Nice work!
