I've climbed this peak more times than I can count. But with a special event on the summit, this is a climb of Bear Peak I'll never forget.

Having lived in Boulder for a month or so, I figured I was in shape and could make it up my local 'hill' without much trouble. I was wrong! 2500 vertical feet in under 2 miles is nothing to sneeze at. But the view from the summit was spectacular and I had the place entirely to myself. Descended via the West ridge under increasingly clouds.

Did a trail run with a friend. Was suprised by the steepness in the canyon but very impressed with the views from the top.

This hike is a great way to spend an afternoon without having to drive an hour. Awesome views of town and the divide.

I have probably been up Bear Peak some 50 times at all times of the year. Indeed when I knew no other mountians I motored up to Boulder to climb Bear 3 or more times a week. I have seen it on summer afternoons covered with ladybugs and on cold winter inversions when Boulder isn't at all visable. I have been up it with friends with family with dogs and solo.

Definitely a great training climb. The Shadow Canyon Trail will get the legs burning on a non-stop ascent.

An excellent hike with a fun mild scramble near the top. A bad hike if you have a fear of mountain lions ripping your body to shreds, but at least its not an 12-hour torture-thon. Great views of Boulder and Denver, plus the Indian Peaks to the west.

Beautiful day yesterday. Climbed both South Boulder Peak and Bear Peak starting from the Mesa TH, up Shadow Canyon, down Fern Canyon, and back. Made for a very long but great day.

Nice hike, a good warm up for the higher mountains. Lots of mud on the lower part of the trail. I saw two other people the entire day.

I've been up this peak multiple times. It's a great day hike, usually there are few people the higher one goes, and the view is wonderful from the top. It's really nice seeing the lights below on the way up (or down) on summer evenings.

Great peak close to home for getting in shape. Has great elevation gain approx 2800 feet and good mileage to break in those hiking boots. It is quite steep in places so if you climb in the winter, watch for ice patches on the trail.



It is nice that it is a short drive and you don't have to deal with I-70 traffic getting home. Once you cross over the boundary of Federal Land from NCAR, dogs can be on voice command and without a leash.



I returned to this summit 6/8/2003 and also included Green Mountain and S. Boulder Peak in a giant loop of 13 miles! Great hike - the wildflowers were beautiful at this time.

I've climbed Bear Peak many times in all seasons. I often run it for a great workout.
