B LENGTH: 6 mi. ELEV. GAIN: 1500 ft. PACE: Fast

Meet at 5:30 am at the Lost Dog Wash Trailhead (1 mile north of Shea at the end of 124th Street).

Get the weekend going with a fast-paced exercise hike up the Sunrise Trail at sunrise. The panoramic views from Sunrise Peak (Elev. 3069 ft.) are great at any time, but especially early in the morning. The trail is out-and-back, so anyone wishing to shorten it or go slower can do so easily.

Although we’ll be finished before the day gets too hot, bring plenty of water and wear sturdy hiking boots.

Cost to non-members is $5.
