Description

The Grand Traverse Trail is one of the most popular rides in the Vail region, exploring the back bowls of Vail Mountain on winding singletrack. As the trail tops out at just under 11,000 feet, riders can thrill in breathtaking views of the Sawatch Range and the Mount of the Holy Cross. The less crowded Cougar Ridge Trail can be used to connect to US 24 and the Vail Bike Path for a challenging, but rewarding loop.
