About the Anaerobic Nightmare

This trail is often used for loops in Snowmass. This difficult ride has technical challenges and a steep grade. Anaerobic Nightmare lives primarily in a forested section with roots on the trail that can pose a challenge for intermediate riders.


Local’s Tip: Unless you’re a glutton for anaerobic punishment, this trail is more enjoyably ridden in the downhill direction (from Government Trail down to Tom Blake Trail).


Small Parking lot on Owl Creek Road that can fit a dozen vehicles.
