Dirt service road not a trail

Full sun exposure on the hiking trail makes it a hot one. But beautiful views of the ski resort and town. I’d recommend early or late in the day when it’s cooler. Bikes and maintenance equipment kick up quite a bit of dust onto us hikers as they pass. I think it’s much better as a mountain bike area.

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.

Great cardio if you take lane of pain to the top!

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.
