1. Rim Trail
The Rim Trail is a wonderful single track ridgeline ride known for its great workout and scenic views. You can start at either the North or South Rim Trailhead, both sections start with a climb up to the alpine ridgeline each with breathtaking views of Snowmass Village and the surrounding peaks. Don’t miss Spiral Point, also called the Yin Yang, a large marble platform that is an ideal place to catch your breath and take in the scenery.
2. Seven Star Trail

3. Skyline Ridge Trail
The Skyline Ridge Trail is a ride on top of Sky Mountain Park with amazing endless views. There are multiple trails to the top, but you’re going to love both Airline Trail and Cozyline Trail that can get you there.
4. Deadline Trail
Deadline Trail is a downhill mountain biking dream. The trail is a one-way downhill only ripping fun ride with awesome mountain views, if you can take your eyes off the trail.
5. Snowmass Loop
The Snowmass Loop isn’t just one trail, it’s a medley of Snowmass Village’s greatest hits.
