From Chautauqua Park, follow the Chautauqua trail straight toward the peak as it leads uphill through a grassy meadow. The trail begins on a wide, graded path through open space past connections for the Ski Jump (.2 miles) and Bluebell Mesa (.3 miles) trails to the Bluebell-Baird Trail junction (.6 miles). Go left, then immediately right at this 3-way fork toward Flatiron #1. The trail splits quickly again for Flatiron #1 (.7 miles) simply follow the signs right and continue on steep switchbacks across a talus field up the trail. The trail curls up a final set of switchbacks to the back of Flatiron #1 and its official end at the Saddle Rock Trail split (1.4 miles, 7,142 ft). From here a short scramble leads up to an alcove behind Flatiron #1 with panoramas across Boulder's back range and Continental Divide.
