Fern Canyon Trail

February 26, 2006



 
Even though it felt like summer today, parts of the Fern Canyon trail were very slippery with ice and packed snow, especially near the summit of Bear Peak. The loop we used to climb South Boulder Peak and Bear Peak was 9.5 miles long and gained 3,480 feet in elevation.
