Bear Peak

Bear Peak is the tallest and most rugged mountain on Boulder's skyline. If you gaze south past the Flatirons, you are looking at it. Every route to the top is challenging, with enough elevation gain that the effort is comparable to some of the tamer 14ers. Hike it to get transported to another planet, with views all the way to Denver, the Rockies, and more.
