Twin Peaks South Boulder(just opened!) and Bear

Let's do a foothill twin peak hike!

Starting at South Mesa trail head, heading north on Table Mesa to Shadow Canyon, up the chute to South Boulder then Bear Peaks then back down the same trail. Shadow Canyon is steep but shaded and there is some trail scrambling to reach Bear but it is not extreme.

South Boulder has been closed since last summer because of fire and erosion and just opened last week.

It's a moderate strenuous hike, you are rewarded with great views.

Bring water, snack, have a good pair of hiking shoes on. The Shadow Canyon chute is a steep climb so be in fairly good shape to do the hike.  Meet-up is done in conjunction with Boulder CHAOS and Bolder Social.

Southern Sun or Under the Sun after.

Hope to see you there!

Weather, terrain and other people can put you in a situation where your knowledge and experience will be vital. If you are new to hiking please read up on mountaineering safety so you can rely on them in a tough situation. Also recommended is that you follow your organizers/hosts directions along with other experienced hikers


Dehydration, and fast-building storms are the most common problems. Be self sufficient, but in return ask questions.
