Great moderate level hike, scrambling at parts and of course, awesome views of Boulder and beyond. For a Wednesday late morning/early afternoon, it is very busy. TONS of owners with unleash dogs. It's a shame really, such natural beauty is marred by horrific amounts of dog wastes (bagged and unbagged" along the trail. Otherwise, it's a worthwhile hike.

Bear peak is what my girlfriend and I refer to when we think of a trail that was too difficult for us. We're working back up to it, it was absolutely beautiful though. Definitely a challenge worth tackling.

Great place to take out-of-towners if you don't want to drive to the national park. I'll be back

Great hike up, started around 730 and round trip was around 2 hours. Only ended up going to Nebel Horn, but I'll be back to summit the whole thing!
