CO Bear Peak, Eldorado Springs
Marker Description: Bear Peak overlooks Boulder, Colorado and is approximately 3.5 miles from the parking lot (at the marker placement) to the summit.


Round trip hike time is about four and a half hours.


Look for the Mesa Trailhead on your right as you are heading towards Eldorado Canyon. The trail is well maintained and begins in earnest in the flat lands as Townee Trail, which you take to Shadow Canyon Trail - a forested canyon. This section is steep and challenging. When it levels off at the top of the canyon, Bear Peak Trail takes you gently to the summit. Sweet view!


Bear sightings, dog friendly, great work out on the steep section of Shadow Canyon Trial, well maintained trail but some loose rock.
