This is a new trail constructed during Summer of 2014. It is being managed as a recommended downhill directional trail given the many jumps along the trail. Access the trail from the top of the Viewline trail
at western end of Skyline Ridge trail. With the opening of Deadline, Viewline trail
will now be signed as recommended only for uphill bike travel.
This trail is another first of its kind for the Aspen / Snowmass area. It's a bike optimized directional flow trail that features large, generous in-sloped berm turns, rollers, table top jumps, drop offs, and a couple doubles that can be easily gapped at speed. The width of the trail and ability to roll over just about every one of the jumps (if you slow down enough) gives this trail an intermediate rating. At full speed, the trail is definitely in the expert/difficult category. While the views towards Snowmass and the forests of the Government Trail
are excellent, your eyes will mostly be focused on the trail!
Use this trail as part of a tour of Sky Mountain Park, or part of a longer ride linking Airline Trail
to Skyline Ridge trail to Deadline trail to Highline trail
to Tom Blake
trail to Powerline
to Government Trail
. Or, park at the Rodeo Lot or smaller parking lot along Owl Creek Road and take multiple laps on Viewline trail
- Deadline Trail - Highline trail
