TWO GORGEOUS PEAKS - RUGGED, YET SO CLOSE TO HOME!


Starting at the South Mesa Trailhead, follow trails up to South Boulder Peak (8549'): one section of trail gains 1600' in 1 mile, making it perhaps the steepest trail in Boulder. Then, proceed to Bear Peak (8461'). Return via Shadow Canyon.

Stunning scenery at the summit of South Boulder Peak.


Outline of trails we will take:

Homestead Tr from South Mesa TH -> Shadow Canyon Tr 2.2 mi

Shadow Canyon Tr -> S. Boulder Peak: 1.5 mi

S. Boulder Peak -> Bear Peak: 0.7 mi

The total distance is around 8 miles and vertical gain is 3500'.

Note this is a fairly strenuous due to the steepness of the trail and rock scrambly sections near summits.

Please make sure you have adequate food and water, a map/GPS, headlamp and CAMERA!


Finally, bad weather postpones!!

This site has an excellent description of the hike
