Description

The Rim Trail in the Aspen and Snowmass area is a great ride for bikers looking for a nice workout and excellent downhill on singletrack without too much technical riding.

The Rim Trail features steep but non-technical singletrack. The climb is broken into two pieces, the second being the most difficult of the trail. Once atop the second climb, the Rim Trail is downhill to the bottom on amazingly smooth singletrack surface. A few switchback uphill turns to the roadway and riders can connect back up with the pavement for a ride back to the trailhead.

Additional Details:

The Rim Trail is multi-use so riders may encounter hikers, trail runners and other users and should follow right of way protocol when meeting other groups. The Rim Trail is high elevation and can experience sudden weather shifts, so riders should bring appropriate warm layers in anticipation of this. In addition, riders should be prepared with a stocked repair kit, first aid kit and extra food and water.
