Fun little hike!
I'm guessing I've climbed this at least a dozen times - usually with Bear Peak up Shadow Canyon. Nov 20, 2010 was the most recent time.
Good workout! Neat canyon. Busy trailhead, good luck getting a parking spot on the weekends.
Climbed along with Bear Peak sometime back in February. Was a good day for such a small (altitude) peak. One of the best hikes in Boulder by far!
Shadow Canyon was nice and steep.
While winter is back to high country, S. Boulder Pk,makes perfect substitude.
Hit this after Bear from S. Mesa & Fern Cyn. Great day with sun and light breeze but IP's and Longs were all clouded over. Descended Shadow. Looking forward to having a go at the Green & Bear It trifecta, maybe in a month or so.
sweet hike via. the S Mesa trailhead and Shadow Canyon, makes for a great combo w/Bear
Sometimes in combination w/Bear and Green.
Coupled with Bear Peak! Great summit/hike especially considering the contrast to my southern Appalachians!!
This was an unseasonably warm t-shirt day. Shadow Canyon is a great low altitude challenge.
Great winter outing. Great view of the Indian Peaks
Cold! The high in Boulder this day was 6 degrees! From Shadow Canyon on up it was actually warmer than it was further down due to the temperature inversion which was going on. It was still cold, but I was hiking in my base layers. Once I got back down, I was shocked at how frigid the lower part of the hike was. I was spoiled with a broken trail most of the way through the snow.
C to C 3 hours. Great hike and a fun day w/ B. Gibbs. :)
Shadow Canyon is one of my favorites.
Made it from NCAR to the summit in about 2 hr 5 mins via Fern Canyon trail. Only stayed on the summit for a minute, for my buddy was waiting for me on Bear. Bear's summit is cooler.
Started from North Shanahan around 10am, took the Mesa Trail, then Shadow Canyon to the top of South Boulder. Didn't seem as steep as Fern Canyon but felt a lot longer in all. Great views from the top. Went back down the same way.
I visited this summit fresh off the climb up the lovely Shadow Canyon. I loved the views from the rocky summit. I also enjoyed fewer people on this summit than on Bear. From the summit of S. Boulder, the Bear summit looks like a shopping mall, people lounging and milling about everywhere. Hiking partner: shannarae2k. Dog: Stimpy.
