Description

Added by The Outbound Collective

This loop takes you up Sunshine Canyon, a milder and less crowded grade when compared to the popular Sanitas ridge. You'll head up the canyon for a bit before reaching the terminus of the canyon trail -- where you'll cross the road to pick up on the Lions Lair connector. Continue following this up, and you'll eventually reach the summit of Mount Sanitas. You can return the way you came, or take the short and steep route down the ridge.
