If you take the loop, the South side of trail passes through the ski area where there is work being done. As a result you have to make your own way around the machinery. The trail is picked up on a gravel access way which is not particularly scenic. If you take the nature trail from the lot and work your way east and north, the trail is very nice for half the loop.

Great short hike in Snowmass. Lots of variety of foliage and great views from the top of the sleigh ride trail back to village. You can see a natural occurrence between the pine and aspen trees here that’s super cool. It’s known that they compete for sunlight as they reach for the sun and grow together.

Great little trail to help acclimate to the altitude. Beautiful wildflowers, beaver dams, aspen groves, and Mountain Views.

Easy and fun trail for kids. We went in early June and it was very green and lots of wild flowers. Also saw two beaver dams along the way!

Very pleasantly surprised by this trail!! Staying at Westin Snowmass and just wanted a quick hike with my wife and 4-year old daughter before dinner. This trail was absolutely beautiful in late September with yellow Aspens and even an abandoned log cabin!!
