Live By Living Day Hike: Sunrise hike at Sugarloaf Mountain. Saturday, October 21.

Join our amazing intern Maren on Saturday, October 21, as she leads a MODERATE sunrise hike at Sugarloaf mountain.   If you’re looking to welcome new energy into your life, this is a great hike for you. This is a short trail with a gorgeous 360 degree view at the top. The rocky trail rises for 500 ft in less than a mile. The trail will skirt the southern face of Sugarloaf providing great views back towards Boulder, which we’ll share together just as the sun rises on a new day. Option to join in guided meditation after the sun rises at the top.
