“Singletrack access to Sky Mountain Park from Snowmass.”
— Mike Pritchard on Jun 13, 2013
RestrictionsClosed to recreation use (for wildlife) from December 1 to May 15. Dogs prohibited.
DescriptionThis singletrack allows access to Sky Mountain Park and the excellent Skyline Ridge trail from the western Snowmass Village side. Access the trail via either end of the Highline trail or from the east. From the Aspen side, via Skyline Ridge trail, this is a fun descent through open meadows and scrub oaks, huge views of Snowmass distracting you all the way down. The trail is relatively new, so some switchbacks / turns don't have a perfect downhill flow yet.
Watch out for hikers as there are a number of blind corners.
When ridden as a climb from the Snowmass side, you'll find that the grade is not too steep most of the time, although a few of the lower switchbacks present steep short challenges.
