Description

This trail offers some of the biggest & most panoramic views in the upper valley, including 360 degree views at the eastern end near the airport's radar tower structure. The trail roughly follows the ridgeline of Sky Mountain Park, connecting on the west end directly to the Viewline trail, and on the east to Radar Road. Radar Road is scheduled to be closed for the 2014 riding season, assuming that construction is complete on the Airline and Cozyline singletrack trails.

Colorful wildflowers abound along the trail during late spring, early summer, soon after the area opens up to recreation for the season. Views towards Aspen and Snowmass, as well as the high mountains in all directions are incredible. Whether you're a local, or you're visiting the area for the first time, put this trail on your short list!
