Many trails in this area ... but we stuck to the main hiking trail to the quarry and views of Steamboat and airport in the distance. Plenty of bike options, if you've got that equipment.

So many trails up in here. Lots of mountain bikers. I'd like to come back and bike it. But it was a nice hike with the kids. Lots of sun exposure.

Open, wide trail for the climb up to the Quarry. Be sure to see the Quarry's 270-degree view over Steamboat .... breathtaking! For the more adventuresome, hike up the "Lane of Pain" to the top of Emerald Mountain.
