Rim Trail is a singletrack trail with great flow making for a great ride. This ride has a smooth surface and well rounded switchbacks. South to North is the recommended direction of travel for this ride.
The Rim Trail is a Roaring Fork Valley Classic not only for its fun factor but also for the beautiful views along the entire trail, which traverses the west and north rims of Snowmass Village. This fast rolling, sinuous singletrack is not technically challenging, but is rated advanced for its steep climbs and aerobic demands. The Rim trail as a whole is referred to in two sections: Rim Trail South and Rim Trail North. Rim Trail South travels approximately 3.8 miles in a Northerly direction before intersecting Sinclair Road and tying into the Rim Trail North. The entire Rim Trail has a high amount of usage so be aware of oncoming foot and bike traffic. Please stay on the trail and respect the private property that lies to either side of the trail.
