Singletrack access to Sky Mountain Park from Snowmass

Mike Pritchard

Overview

Closed to recreation use (for wildlife) from December 1 to May 15. Dogs prohibited.
Features: -none-

Description

This 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. While some of the switchbacks / turns don't have a perfect downhill flow, this is less of a concern for riders since the opening of the Deadline Trail, which is now the recommended downhill trail from Skyline Ridge trail, while Viewline is the recommended ascent trail for climbing up to the ridge.

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. The lowest section of the trail, which connects to the roundabout area and nearby Rodeo parking lot, was rerouted and improved with generous bermed turns in October 2015. This reworked section of trail was previously considered the northern end of Highline trail.
