Quick  Sucess!

Set a brisk pace for myself and made it from the road to the summit in 35 mins via Sanitas Trail. Descended the steeper East Ridge trail.

All Day Saturday  Sucess!

Started off on Canyon and took the Red Rocks trail to the Mt. Sanitas trail head. Went up along the Mount Sanitas trail, and came down via some unmapped trail that we thought was East Ridge. Turned out to be barely traveled and extremely steep, and came out a little ways down the walking path.

Sanitas  Sucess!

Nice Friday afternoon hike on a partially cloudy March day. Headed up the south ridge and returned via the much steeper east "ridge" and the broad Sanitas Valley footpath. While there were others on the trail, it wasn't as crowded as other people made it seem like it was going to be.

Sanitas Trail  Sucess!

My morning disappeared quickly so I changed plans from S. Boulder & Bear to Sanitas. What a nice little hike and I hit the summit a little faster than expected.

Mount Sanitas Trail  Sucess!

Climbed with a good friend via the Mt. Sanitas Trail and headed down via the East Ridge to Dakota Ridge. It was a fun a and quick outing with fairly cooperative weather.

Ran up this morning  Sucess!

Wanted to try Longs Peak today, but Leah wasn't feeling up to it, so I settled for riding my bike to the Sanitas Valley Trailhead and running/hiking to the top of this peak. Made it up in 22 mins. Descended down the east ridge, but I think I got off trail and ended up on a very steep non-maintained trail. Took it down to the main Sanitas Valley Trail and then ran it back to my bike.

It was a great morning workout.

Unrelenting!  Sucess!

Took the afternoon off to hike up this peak. I've lived in Boulder for less than a month, so I found the steepness of this hike to be quite challenging. Descended via the even steeper East Ridge.

Sanitas trail  Sucess!

The steps at the bottom are a pain in the ass. Nice views from the top though. Hit this peak, Flagstaff and Haystake today.

Mount Sanitas Trail  Sucess!

Took an evening hike via the Mount Sanitas Trail. The first third is basically climbing a log staircase. Overall, an enjoyable hike, but if you're climbing in the Boulder group and want a great view at the end, I would go for Green instead of this option.

Wow  Sucess!

Just moved from Midwest and nearly got passed by an octogenarian with two walking poles. Good eye- (amd lung-) opener for a beginner.

Regular Morning Hike  Sucess!

Finally decided to sign the log. Been climbing sanitas twice a week for a couple months now, plan on continuing well into winter. Feel free to join me Tuesday/Thursday morning around 745 at the trailhead.

Nothing better to do...  Sucess!

I had a couple hours to spare while in Boulder on a business trip, so I ran up this peak for a little exercise. Some time in the late 1990's.

Great little mountain  Sucess!

I live walking distance from the trailhead and have done Mount Sanitas (and Dakota Ridge and the Valley trail) numerous times, often with my daughter in the pack. Great little escape & a great workout.

Sanitas  Sucess!

Great hike next to Boulder. Hiked/ran it in the am before work and still made it there by 8:00.

Sanitas  Sucess!

Been up a few times but this was the latest one. Best time up the 'short' way is 34:30. I would love to go up in sub-30 some day but I'll have to work at it hard. Great mountain for training.

Hike then Boulder  Sucess!

Hike the south ridge. Bring your rock shoes and stash them for a bouldering session on the way back down. Makes for a nice afternoon combo.
