Arrived around 5am and only a handful of cars were already there. About 3500’ of gain- took us 1.5 hrs to get to S.B Peak and then 22 min to get to bear peak. Our dog was having a hard time scrambling but made it. We took fern canyon back down and it was beautiful!

Fun trail! It is pretty long, but I would consider this medium more than hard. There is only one hard part I’d say, when you cross the river on the east side of the trail. Did this with a 3 month old puppy.

great 4 mile jog. some good incline, but not too hard. saw 2 bikers and 1 hiker in an hour, not too busy. love this little hike, very pretty. will be back.

We started as just a walk but ended up doing the whole hike. A good number of bikers on the trail. We got to the little creek and the water was nice and cold.

Lovely hike. Light drizzle half way through. Go clockwise for best views.

The trail overall isn't to hard. This is a good trail to take visitors. I will hike the trail when Boulder removes the mask requirement. Reminder, the trail is outside. Masks should not be required when your outside.

Beautiful vistas all along, as well as copious wildflowers.

Overall a good tail to get outside and get the legs moving. About 800ft gain but it is gradual. A little more up grade the last 1/2 mile. Good for dogs.

This was a great narrow, rocky trail through a forest. The incline isn’t too difficult since it’s spread over 3 miles. Pretty populated with bikers, but all very respectful. Arrived just before 8am on a Saturday morning and the parking lot was almost full. Recommend going early if you go on a weekend.

Great workout. The views were beautiful and the river and water fall was great. Lots to see. Bring plenty of water!! Most people had masks and those who didn’t were kind to keep a good distance.

Drove 15 hours to go here and it was breath taking! Definitely recommend

Beautiful 90 degree day. Started at NCAR, stopped halfway and hammocked for lunch.

Epic! Need I say more? You've probably done them individually, or so. Now put them all together into one, long day. bring enough water and a jacket--you never know what the weather will do.

Very hard

Great nature walk. Not exactly a “hike” as you’re walking along the same dirt road cars use to get to gross reservoir, but it was very pleasant nonetheless. Lots of cool camp sites and wildflowers, and the reservoir itself is really pretty once you get down to it.

Nice quick hike my dog loved it

Nice quick hike.

This was my first ever hike and I LOVED it! Beautiful views with shady spots along the way. Great way to start your day!

Love this trail! Plenty of shade for most of the hike, with some sunnier spots towards the end. Incline was pretty solid for the first 1.5 or so, but it wasn’t too bad. We would def do again!

Beautiful views and great trail. The south bloulder creek is gorgeous. I will definitely be back to this trail! Lots of bikers but were courteous. We had a toddler in a thule stroller and one in an osprey pack. Was an awesome workout. Def wear hiking boots, and take lots of water, and a rain-shell in case it rains.

Cave closed for bat habitats, but very good cardio and views.

Great fun to do alone or with a partner. Most people are wearing their masks.

Start early AM as a significant amount of the trail is on the sun. You'll get a mix of open vistas, woods, climbs, rocks, creek...a bit of everything. Fantastic smells in the spring.
