Shanahan Ridge/Mesa Trail Loop Hike (Boulder)

April 25 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 9:00 am on day Fourth of the month, repeating until October 24, 2019

TYPE: Hike | PACE: Fitness/Conversational | TERRAIN: Dirt trails | DISTANCE: Approx. 3 miles |

Walk Description: This hike follows a scenic loop on the Shanahan Ridge Trail and the Mesa Trail in South Boulder. Depending on the weather and trail conditions, we will either walk the entire Shanahan Ridge-Mesa Trail loop (3.2 miles) or the shorter Shanahan Connector loop (2.4 miles), both of which offer a good workout and great views. It’s an invigorating hike to jump-start your day. Come out for a moderately paced walk and good company!

Great Options for Getting There: Take the Skip bus to the Lafayette stop, or drive and park along Lehigh Street near Lafayette Drive.

Walking Movement Leader: Darcy Kitching is one of the five core owners of the Walk2Connect Cooperative and is the co-op’s Collaborative Storyteller. Read Walk2Connect Stories here.

~ Well-socialized and well-behaved dogs are welcome on short leashes (no retractable leashes, please).

~ Dress comfortably for the weather, bring sun protection and water, and anything else you need to stay comfortable outside.

~ Bring traction for your shoes or boots in the winter, as the trail does get icy.

Cancellation Policy: This event will take place regardless of the weather, unless there is a major snowstorm, excessive ice or other dangerous weather. Check Meetup or text the walk leader for the most up-to-date conditions.
