“Connector trail between Slalom and Prospect Hill Road above Gold Run Road”
— D L
The Western Sky Trail begins across from Slalom
at the high point of Gold Run Road
. Pass east through a wooden chicane onto Fall Classic Trail
and turn immediately right onto Western Sky. The trails are all marked.
Climb initially (honing your skills on a circular mine adit along the way) before topping out and descending to Gold Run Road
. Turn left and ride onto pavement past a driveway and garage built into a hill on the left and the top of Forest Hills Drive on the right.
Western Sky continues up the left ditch bank just past the garage. Climb steadily to a high point offering outstanding views of the Ten Mile Range. Descend to the end of the trail at a gravel road across from Chantilly Trail
Turn left on the pavement to access Prospect Hill Road
(GH 38) and the Classic Breckenridge Route
. Cross the road and descend Chantilly Trail
across Gold Run Road
to Forest Hills Drive. About a 1/2 mile down Forest Hills Drive, the Upper Flume Trail
parallels the road on the right.
