"Find relative seclusion just minutes from downtown Boulder on this easy hike in the Sanitas Valley, with the Dakota Hogback forming a natural barrier between the parkland and an adjacent historic neighborhood. The Dakota Hogback, the first significant rise of the Rocky Mountains, is a fixture of the mountain backdrop along the Front Range. In Boulder the hogback is overshadowed by the Flatirons, but the rolling ridge gains prominence as you move north, beginning here in Sanitas Valley at the mouth of Sunshine Canyon. The hogback ridge forms the east wall of little Sanitas Valley, with Mount Sanitas forming the western border. The valley is narrow and sloping, watered by a seasonal stream and ditch, and site of wildflower blooms in spring and summer." Read more
