Description

This trail provides access to Sky Mountain Park from the Aspen side, and can be easily accessed from the Owl Creek Trail and nearby Buttermilk Ski Area parking lot. It connects to the new Cozyline Trail at its upper end. This trail was constructed to replace the now off limits Radar Road (administrative access only).

This trail is a first of its kind for the Aspen / Snowmass area. It's a multi-use trail that has many features designed for mountain bikes including large sloped berm turns, dips, and rollers. The trail climbs gently with almost no steep sections to deal with.

Enjoy big views of the upper valley towards Independence Pass & Aspen Mountain, not to mention the airport runway just below.
