Description

The Second Flatiron rests between the much more imposing First and Third Flatirons. It is much neglected and only sees a small fraction of the traffic that its more stately neighbors get. However, it is the home of several classic flatiron scrambles of considerable length, and is well worth a visit. Be sure to sample Freeway, Dodge Block, and Free for All - Flatiron Classics by any measure.

Getting There

From the ranger cottage at Chautauqua Park follow the Chautauqua trail to the Flatirons Loop Trail. Follow this trail about 2/10 of a mile south to the Second/Third Flatiron trail. This trail leads directly to the bottom of the north side of the Second Flatiron. The approach takes approximately half an hour.

The descent is to the north to the saddle between the First Flatiron and Sunset Rock. Pick up the the Second/Third Flatiron trail here and descend to the east.
