Chapman Drive Trail reopens connecting Flagstaff & Boulder Canyon

Chapman Drive Trail, aka Flagstaff Summit Road, which connects Boulder Canyon Drive at the Red Lion Inn to Flagstaff Road via the north side of Flagstaff Mountain will now be open thanks to several initiatives that are now complete. In December, Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks removed old rotting pipes from the cattle guard and reconstructed the switchback about a mile down from Realization point which had collapsed in two places. The city recently purchased the Schnell property in order to complete the plans to finish the Chapman Drive Trail and finally the bridge connecting Boulder Canyon Drive to the Red Lion Inn was rebuilt after it was destroyed two and a half years ago due to heavy floods.
