Description

This lollipop trail starts southeast of the gondola as a wide, graded gravel path that transitions into a dirt singletrack loop about halfway through. From this point you can continue east to head up Chisholm Trail if you're looking for a more difficult hike.

This trail is perfect for families looking to get outside and on the mountain without a full day's commitment.

Slight accent toward the beginning of the trail.  Nice treed portion on the backside of the hill.
