Sunday AM Cardio: a series of high intensity, short hikes. 2-3 miles round trip, 1500-2500 ft in elevation gain with the intent to only be out for 2 hours or less. The trails selected will be high use trails so that snowshoes should not be needed.
The hike to the top of Peak 2 is steep climb with around 2000 ft of elevation gain over 1.25 miles one way. This is a great training peak that will test your cardio in under 2 hours. The trail begins off of Rabbit Creek Trail, taking a left turn up the gulley between Flattop and Peak 2.
When/Where: Please meet at the gate on Canyon Road. There is a parking area just before this gate, where I recommend everybody park. Do not park at the "No Parking" signs or risk a $300 fine. The upper parking lot is not recommended due to its small size and road conditions beyond the gate.
Cost: There is no fee at this trailhead.
- Kahtoolas or other traction footwear are optional but highly recommended as the trail will be snowy and icy.
- trekking poles (optional but very helpful on the steeps and on rocky, muddy, and slippery areas)
- Dress in non-cotton layers so you can shed or add clothes as temps change
- Water & trail snacks
