“This is a dry, challenging climb to the Wildridge area from the Avon Singletree Connector Trail.”— Megan W
The trail has suffered some significant erosion and initially climbs alongside a jumbled ravine. There are several old, defunct trails in this area, so please observe closures and stay on the main trail.
Soon you leave the canyon and begin a series of long switchbacks up the parched hillside. You would be forgiven for stopping for a breather and to admire the views of Beaver Creek ski area and the town of Avon. The trail eventually intersects with PB&J before ending at a complicated, partially signed junction with the mountain bike descent, Lee's Way Down.
Bikes are allowed on the Saddle Ridge Trail, so keep an ear out for them.
