The city of Boulder has set the pace for open-space preservation among Colorado’s Front Range communities. Some 43, 000 acres of prime foothills acreage have been set aside and many miles of hiking trails and numerous trailhead facilities have been established. One of the more interesting, and most challenging, of these hiking routes climbs through the South Boulder foothills to the top of Bear Peak. At 8461 feet, Bear Peak misses out at being the tallest in the area by a few feet. It does, however, provide one of the most comprehensive views of the Boulder area below and the plains beyond.
