Run South Boulder and Bear Peak from NCAR
Hello, wonderful runners! For this Saturday's run, we'll be running a lollipop loop to tag South Boulder Peak and Bear Peak from NCAR. We will meet at the NCAR Trail trailhead at 8:00am and take NCAR Trail to Mesa Trail. We will follow Mesa Trail to Shadow Canyon Trail and ascend South Boulder Peak via Shadow Canyon. We will then take Bear Peak Trail to Bear Peak. We will descend via Fern Canyon and then retrace a mile's worth of steps on Mesa Trail back to NCAR. This run is ~8.5 miles with ~3k+ feet of elevation gain and should take roughly 3.5-ish hours. [*Note: this route has been changed from original posting due to Bear Canyon Trail closure.*] Those who would like to run a shorter distance are welcome to do an out-and-back from NCAR along Mesa Trail. Those who would like to run longer are welcome to add on Green Mountain via Bear Peak West Ridge Trail/Green-Bear Trail. Please post in the comments section if you will be running a shorter out-and-back along Mesa Trail or a longer distance to encourage others to join. Traction potentially recommended--will update soon. Looking forward to a beautiful morning in the mountains with you all!

    What we're about

    A group of trail runners that are as serious about their trail running as the breakfast that follows. We enjoy diversity in our trails, restaurants, and running cohorts. Many runs are in the Boulder area; however we also look to get into the high country as much as possible. Runs are typically on Saturday mornings. The duration varies from about 1 hour to 3+ depending on location, group fitness, schedules, etc. Terrain can range from easy flat to steep technical. Pace can vary widely however we never let anyone forget why they joined a group.
