Details

Come support new leader Jennifer Grant.  This is a Leader in Training hike.



2.7 miles, 1,295' gain, fast hiking pace (1:20-1:40 approximate hiking time.)



We will meet at first light at the Centennial Park Trailhead.  Meet at 6:00 am for an early sunrise hiking departure.  As  the sun colors the sky we will follow the Mount Sanitas Trail to the Mount Sanitas Summit and return the same way.  The route is almost all uphill to the summit with various rock formations, stairs, and tree roots to maneuver, none of which are difficult. Along the way there are several good views and we will be rewarded with an expansive view of the city of Boulder extending to the eastern flats and skyscrapers of Denver, as well as snow capped peaks to the west in Boulder County.



Gear: 10 essentials, head lamp, micro spikes (treking poles optional)



This is a CMC people hike, no dogs please. 



Directions to the trail head: From Denver: Take 93 North to Boulder, go through downtown Boulder and turn left (west) on Mapleton (top of hill.)  Start looking for the trailhead on your left after 4th street.  There are pit toilets at the trailhead.
