The August heat can be tough on our canine companions. The Sanitas Valley Trail is a great place to wet your pup and go for a great hike. It is easy to get there from Mapleton Avenue in Boulder. This trail is unique. It has amazing Boulder geology and history, cool clean water from The Silver Lake Ditch, and a loop hike to a local peak named Mt. Sanitas with great views of the priarie and continential divide. Not surprisingly it is very popular with dogs, guardians, babies, a mutant black fox, and the occassional black bear. Beware: parking on weekends is limited.
