Trail Overview

Breathe in the high mountain air on this short but fun ride that starts above 10,000 feet. The top is a flat tundra above the treeline, great for picnics and taking pictures. Please always stay on the designated trail. No road closures, but expect snow through early summer and starting early fall.
