Walk Description: Starting at the Neptune Mountaineering Cafe, we'll take an invigorating morning walk through South Boulder neighborhoods, going up to the top of Shanahan Ridge, over to Bear Mountain Drive and the Bear Canyon connector trail, through Bear Creek Park, and back along various streets. It's a beautiful route that gets the blood pumping, with almost 500 feet of elevation gain. This route IS stroller friendly, and everyone is welcome.
Schedule, Transit and Planning: We will meet at 9:00 am inside Neptune Mountaineering Cafe, next door to the Southern Sun Pub and Brewery in the Table Mesa Shopping Center. Come early to get a coffee and use the restroom. The shopping center is easily accessible by transit - take the SKIP bus down Broadway.
Walking Movement Leader: Darcy Kitching started volunteering with the Boulder Ramblers in 2015, and this was her original walk route. You can reach Darcy at 303-250-2436 or [email protected]
