Description

This fantastic trail climbs up and gently goes up and down around a bench above the Yampa River. Views of the town and ski area abound. The Overlook Trail (a short and easy extension) should not be skipped! On your way back you'll pass through aspen groves and a neat section through small rocky bluffs that kind of feel like a tunnel.

This is suitable for beginners willing to negotiate just a few rocky sections minor hills.

This is one of the better trails at Emerald unless you like ruts and loose gravel.
