Bike optimized downhill recommended flow style trail with great bermed turns and tons of fun jumps.

Mike Pritchard

Description

Seasonal wildlife closure in effect Dec. 1 through May 15.
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.

Did 5 laps on Viewline to Deadline, only stopped because of rain, just can't get enough. Here's a cool virtual intro https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KAoLxBhSrjU Nov 13, 2014


Such a fun trail especially when you've done it enough to know exactly what is coming (turn, doubles, tabletop etc) Aug 7, 2016


One of the best downhill rides I've ever done Aug 8, 2016
