Fern Canyon Trail from NCAR, was hoping to get to South Boulder as well but storms were rolling in and I needed to go back.
Nice hike, fun rock ridge. Makes for a great loop. http://www.coloradoascents.blogspot.com/2014/03/south-boulder-peak-and-bear-peak.html
Great view of the plains and Boulder Area
Started up at 10:20am (late start)took the Mesa Trail to Shadow Canyon Trail up past Devils Thumb. Reached a very crowded summit at 12:26pm. Signed registry and back down to my truck at 2:29pm. Sweet!
Both peaks, a little icy but good front range exercise.
Climbed numerous times with South Boulder. Love this hike.
First time to climb it... hope to do many many more... up shadow canyon... cool mountain!
A nice solo 10.5 mile loop that got me both Green Mountain and Bear Peak. Super windy on the summit of Bear.
Out with the family.
A friend and I climbed it in an afternoon from his front door in Boulder. We had perfect weather and great views in all directions.
Done this a few times, killer training hike/run
Nice afternoon hike of the "trio". Started and ended from the South Mesa TH.
First summit register for the 8 year old hiking partner
Nice trail from S. Boulder Peak with a short scramble to the summit.
I climbed it via the Fern Canyon Trail today - VERY icy.
In March of 2010 I combined it with Green Mountain - a pleasant hike.
I have been up this and South boulder peak several times, they are always good early season leg work outs.
Loved the knife ridge at the top!
Nice hike. Great views!
Nice day with my wife and a good friend. Up Fern and down the west slopes. Snowy/icy up high. Wished I had some micro-spikes!
