Awesome hike. We took the Dakota Ridge instead of Sanitas trail just cause it offers a bit more of a work out vs a flat road. Awesome way up the mountain, super rocky and more technical than expected at the top but it was great, even with my dog. If your pup has issues with stairs or rocky terrain I might choose another trail. One of my favorite hikes in Boulder, even though it is also so, so crowded.

Not very crowded on a Wednesday morning. Only saw two other people on the trail. The first ~1 mile is relatively easy. The trail is rocky but not a scramble. The trail is by no mean flat, but it's relatively wide and not too difficult. The last .3 miles is steeper and mostly a rock scramble -- it's also an off-leash option area for dogs. My pooch had a blast climbing to the peak.

There's no real parking area, just spots to pull off on the side of the road.

This was a good hike however, it is “hard” in several sections of the trail and moderate the most of the way. Just be ready for lots of rocks and inclines. Lots a spots to take great pictures.
