Mount Sanitas is known to have the occasional mountain lion visit, along with coyotes, foxes, and plenty of mule deer (aka lion food). That is probably the reason why Boulder’s newest—and arguably most awesome—trail is named “Lion’s Lair.” Completed in the spring of 2015, the route to Lion’s Lair starts to the southwest of the Centennial Trailhead on a trail that parallels Sunshine Canyon Road, heading up the canyon.
