Sunday Morning At Sanitas

It's Sanitas time!

Meet on the north/hospital side of the road, at the trail map which is approx. 1/4 mile slightly uphill on the trail. Parking can be a bit of a challenge, either by the hospital, off the pavement on the opposite side, or further up the road at the Centenial Trailhead.

Sanitas is generally rated moderate strenuous. It's a great cardio burn for those who are getting acclimated or want a good work out.

At the trail map we will take the trail to the left, which climbs steeply with several wood/rock steps. There are two or three false summits which provide good resting spots we head up.

The summit provides a great view of North Boulder and to the opposite glimpses of Indian Peaks. After a steep gravely descent the trail turns into switchbacks then into a straight "stroll in the park" to the trail map again.

Come join the group for a Sanitas experience!

    Great hike, great group. Nice to meet you all. For the stats nerds, I recorded the hike 1,268 ft, 3.9 miles. http://app.strava.com/activitie...­.

    I only found out on waking up this morning that I was off the waiting lost and on the yes list. It's too late to make it there on time, so I can't make it.

    I'm on the wait list but I'm wondering if there's a point to that? I assume it's just because you have to put a cap on the size of the meetup? I'll just plan on meeting at the trailhead unless instructed not to come haha

    Jim and Anna, I'm not sure what part of Longmont you guys are but I'm way NE. We could meet @ the Twin Peaks Mall and leave cars there since hardly any of the parking lot gets used anymore. Say 7:50am? I drive a black honda civic - can hold 4 people if 2 don't mind crawling in a 2 door!
