Nice nature walk. Pretty vistas of Boulder. We did the simple loop with our dog. $5 to park without Boulder registered vehicle. Little to no elevation change on the loop. Will come back to do the longer piece (ascent) - but a nice, quick, scenic walk.

Great hike! Probably my favorite so far in this park. Not easy, but give yourself enough time and most people in reasonable shape can make it.

3 1/2 hours hiked Mesa trail to Shadow Canyon trail to top of Bear Mountain then on to top of South Boulder Peak. Great views, worth the strenuous mile at the top.

Not for the weak! It's a tough, uphill, climb one way with some rugged terrain. And then an equally tough trek back down. Very popular place. I'm overweight and outta shape, but I made it to the arch. About 2 hours up and about an hour down.

great trail to go and just explore and have fun with. it was an extremely easy trail for the most part. at the end if the trail there is some nice challenging spots, but it's a very fun time overall
