“A wide, smooth, and easy climbing-only trail that rewards riders with big views the higher you climb.”— Mike Pritchard
Family Friendly Wide, smooth tread, easier grades (although still a big, long climb), and easy access from Snowmass Village Mall and Base Village via Fanny Hill Trail.
The trail meanders across grassy ski run meadows with increasingly bigger views the higher you climb. You'll also encounter forested segments, both beautiful aspen groves and dark evergreen timber.
Use this trail to access the parallel Village Bound, which was recently rerouted to act as a companion descent to this easier climb. Once at the top of Discovery, use Village Bound to access other area trails including the Connector Trail, West Government Trail, and Cross Mountain Trail.
