The second star is based purely on convenience since the Sandstone trailhead is basically my backyard. Otherwise, this trail can be very annoying. It’s single track so anytime you pass another hiker or biker you have to jump off the trail into very tall brush, which is not easy to do with two dogs. Mountain bikers seem to love this trail though, there’s always a ton of them. I love taking in the views of Vail, but the highway noise isn’t ideal. If would definitely not recommend this trail if you’re visiting, there are way too many other trails worth checking out.
