Sunshine Canyon Drive, Boulder, CO
This is a strong exercise hike!
The plan is to meet at the TOP of Mt. Sanitas at 6:15pm. To achieve this we will need to have two departure times from the bottom.
We will leave from the pagoda at the trail head for the Mt. Sanitas trail on Mapleton in Boulder.
From the Centennial parking lot, follow the trail 50 yds east, parallel to the road and cross to the other side. There you will find the pagoda.
The slower group should leave the pagoda by 5:30.
The faster group should leave by 5:45.
Sanitas is a 1250ft climb over 1.25 miles. The aim of the hike is to really get the blood pumping. Please bring some water, perhaps an extra shirt and stopwatch, and a spare set of lungs.
When we get back down, about 7pm, the aim is to quaff a beer at The Hungry Toad.
