Hike the Skyline Traverse: 5 Peaks on October 5! (Boulder)

October 5

Free

TYPE: Hike | PACE: Fitness | TERRAIN: Dirt trails, steep hills, mountain peaks | DISTANCE: Approximately 17 miles | ELEVATION GAIN: 6,100′

DESCRIPTION: Come hike the Skyline Traverse with Darcy! On this 17-mile, five-peak hike we’ll summit South Boulder Peak, Bear Peak, Green Mountain, Flagstaff Mountain, and Mount Sanitas. For a partial map and complete description of the typical route for this hike, please follow this link: https://www.hikingproject.com/trail/7011192. ** Please note that we will start on Greenbriar because the South Mesa Trailhead is closed. We will follow the Bluestem trails to Shadow Canyon and proceed to South Boulder Peak that way. **

After the hike, join in for a dinner celebration at The Hungry Toad!

SCHEDULE AND PLANNING: We begin at the Greenbriar Connector Trail at 7 am and end at the foot of the Goat Trail, at 3rd Street and Forest Avenue in North Boulder around 5 pm. We will plan carpool arrangements as the hike approaches.

For more information, contact: Darcy – 303-250-2436 or darcy@walk2connect.com

Notes:
~ This is a very strenuous, difficult hike. Please train diligently before the event, and consult with Darcy about any concerns you might have going into it.

~ If you only want to hike part of the way, please let Darcy know your plans. We are hiking south to north, with Mt. Sanitas as our final challenge. We welcome hikers to join us on that final mountain and at the celebration afterward!

~ Be sure to bring plenty of water, snacks, lunch, sun protection, and rain protection, and wear appropriate gear/clothing for the season. Darcy will distribute a gear list well in advance of the event.

~ If you have not joined one of our walks yet this year, please take a moment to sign our Welcome Waiver, available here: http://walk2connect.com/welcomewaiver/

RSVP: This event is limited to 25 total attendees! Please visit the Boulder Walks Meetup Page to RSVP, or contact Darcy at darcy@walk2connect.com.
