Pubview is a fun way to make a short loop on Mount Medaris. Some will hike Pubview as an out-and-back, but it is described here as a loop with the Medaris Ridge
Pubview starts near the location where Salty Dalty
intersects the Medaris Ridge
. Take Pubview away from the Medaris Ridge
for a gradual climb to the western end of the Medaris Ridge
. Many views of downtown New Castle and the Colorado River are found along the trail.
Arrive at the end of Pubview after a series of challenging switchbacks and either turn around and go back the way you came, or take a right on the Medaris Ridge
for a challenging end to your loop hike.
Note that the trail to your left, West Medaris, is closed to bikes and is open to foot traffic only, which makes for a pleasant hiking experience. Please obey all trail regulations while hiking on Mount Medaris.
