Parking is limited so arrive as early as you can. It's a moderate hike with a gorgeous scenic view at the top. The well-known yin yang is at the top of this trail. Great picnic spot!

Parking can be tricky. Very easy trail to hike, but a good challenge if mountain biking. Popular trail - lots of traffic. Great views of the Snowmass Wilderness peaks from the summit.

Great workout rewarded by great views. I mountain biked starting with the South rim trail, quite strenuous even in 1st gear. Once to the rim it levels out and becomes a fun downward descent. Very narrow trail throughout. Single file only.
