A rideable climb up to the ridge at the top of Red Hill with expansive views over the Roaring Fork.

Michael Ahnemann

Description

After ascending Three Gulch Trail, most riders will find this one kinder and gentler. The trail surface is generally much smoother here, although there are still a few rocks to contend with. You'll be rewarded very quickly with incredible views out over the Roaring Fork River and Carbondale, all the way out to Mt. Sopris in the distance.

There are plenty of spots to hang out and enjoy the scenery once you reach the ridge. Just remember to stay right at the first fork you come to, and just before you reach the highest point along the ridge, be looking left for a 180 degree turn to the left for Roller Coaster Trail.

If you miss Roller Coaster and continue straight, you'll end up on Mushroom Rock Trail, which becomes unrideable.
