SANITAS TRAIL NEARLY LOVED TO DEATH

The Denver Post - - NEWS - By Alex Bur­ness

Boul­der’s Mount Sanitas Trail will un­dergo a mul­ti­year restora­tion project as one in a se­ries of trail- main­te­nance ef­forts.

The trail at Sanitas, in north­west Boul­der, “is quite hon­estly fall­ing apart be­cause of overuse,” said Jim Reeder, trails and fa­cil­i­ties man­ager for the Open Space and Moun­tain Parks di­vi­sion.

Boul­der hasn’t tracked vis­i­tor data at Sanitas in about a decade, Reeder said, but the city is in the process of col­lect­ing data in or­der to bet­ter un­der­stand the de­gree to which the area is threat­ened by heavy us­age.

The Sanitas Trail project is ex­pected to be­gin in June. The trail will re­main open dur­ing re­pairs.
