TYPE: Bi-Weekly (Tuesday) | PACE: Fitness | TERRAIN: Mixed Path | DISTANCE: Approx. 3 mi
Walk Description: This fitness walk is held the second Tuesday of every month; beginning and ending at Foothills Community Park near the restrooms and the dog park, going south along multi-use paths onto sidewalks in the Wonderland Hills neighborhood, and looping back north on the Foothills Trail, taking a short side trip (less than a mile) on the Old Kiln Trail. Along the way, hikers will see some beautiful views of Wonderland Lake, the foothills, and the eastern plains. The route includes gentle hills, with little, but some, elevation gain.
Walking Movement Leader: Darcy Kitching and other Boulder Ramblers leaders will take turns leading this urban hike created by Lorrie Johnson while she is away.
Schedule and Planning: There are two parking lots at Foothills Community Park: We will meet at the parking lot near the restrooms adjacent to the dog park on 7th Street. This walk is also accessible by the SKIP bus, which stops at Broadway and Violet; the Park is a few blocks west of Broadway. We'll meet at 9:00 am and begin walking at 9:05. The walk will end by 10:30 am.
