Under a new City of Boulder ordinance, effective November 18 parking along Flagstaff Road (above the turnoff for Gregory Canyon) will only be allowed from 5am – 9pm, rather than the previous time of 5am – 11pm. This change was necessary to facilitate law enforcement activities after dark.
This is only a parking rule. The boulders and trails will remain open 24/7, for those willing to park at the base of Flagstaff and hike or bike up/down.
The Flatirons Climbing Council along with the Boulder Climbing Community, successfully persuaded Open Space staff, Board of Trustees, and Boulder City Council to create an online system that will allow recreational users to obtain a permit to park until 11pm — preserving the same access as before. Open Space staff are working to develop the permit system, but it will not be ready until a later date. We will publicize the timing and logistical details of the system when they are known.
Please comply with the 9pm parking closure and the permit system once it is created (for those wanting to park until 11pm). Open Space staff will review the effectiveness of the parking regulations after one year. Our ability to persuade Boulder to create the permit system, rather than suffer a total loss of parking access after 9pm, was due in large part to the good relations climbers have developed with OSMP.
