Description

The Seven Star Trail can be ridden up or down, but many riders will encounter it first as an extension to a traditional south to north Rim Trail Loop ride. Find the intersection a few minutes downhill from the North Rim Trail's highpoint. For a shorter loop, and more direct connection, start at Town Park (aka Rodeo Lot, aka Snowmass Recreation Center parking lot), and climb the North Rim Trail to this intersection, or find the bottom of the trail northeast of the parking lot and tennis courts.

When ridden in the downhill direction, you'll encounter an initial traversing section that includes panoramic views of Snowmass and Sky Mt. Park and the mountainous horizon beyond. The trail speeds up and includes a seemingly endless amount of turns through scrub oak terrain, until finally arriving at a large sage brush meadow and a final traverse above Brush Creek wetlands on the way back to the Town Park Trailhead.

While it's north of Brush Creek Rd., the trail is actually part of Sky Mt. Park, managed by Pitkin County Open Space and Trails. The town of Snowmass Parks & Trails and RFMBA were also funding partners for the trail constructed by Tony Boone Trails late 2016.
