“A casual and fun trail along the ridge with great views of the foothills.”— Tom Robson
Near the southern end of this trail there are steps and obstacles crossing the ridge line that most people have to place their feet carefully on. Other than that, the trail is mostly clear of obstacles, doesn't have any very steep grades, and is well built. With tons of linkup and variations available, Blue Sky is not one to miss.
Note that there are a number of blind corners on Blue Sky and it can be crowded on weekends.
