This short trail takes you through a beautiful aspen stand from The Peaks Resort Hotel down to Big Billies and the Meadows. It consists of nice smooth single track with some fast flowing sections.

Started the trail from the opposite end, by Meadows parking area. The first part of the trail was a bit muddy and icy, as it was on a part of the hill more exposed to the sun. As soon as the trail wound around to the other side of the hill, the snow was deep and ample. The trail is fairly narrow in parts, but overall was a lovely snowshoe trek with few other people.

This is a simple single track that will take less than 15mins. Expect rocky and rooted terrain with stunning views to your right and seclusion on the left.

My parents and me started on this trail around 5:30pm and the initial views of the San Juan mountains were amazing! The trail was very well maintained, shady and doable for younger and older people. At the end rather then turning around we just continued on Big Billie’s Trail and followed the signs to Village Place that looped back around to where we started Jurassic Trail. Big Billie’s is a sunnier trail. Overall, the trail was lovely and I would recommend for an easy afternoon hike your first day here when you’re getting acclimated to the altitude.

This is a cute- short trail with great views. Good for little ones to feel like an explorer. Can take Big Billies Trail back towards The Peaks- though that's an incline with no shade, fyi.

Great in an out trail! At the end of the trail don’t go up and cut across the meadow to get down. It’s prettier just to go in and back.

Nice trail with beautiful views. There are benches where you can sit and take in the view.

This is a very fun section of single track that goes from The Peaks down to Big Billies. It traverses and descends through a beautiful aspen stand. I just wish it was longer!
