Features: River/Creek — Views — Wildlife
Dogs: Leashed

Description

The northern end of this trail starts at the Blue Sky trailhead/parking, the south end meets up with Devil's Backbone, and it intersects with Rim Rock Trail around the middle. Indian Summer also branches off of Blue Sky, so there are many possibilities for this trail.

Near the southern end of this trail there are steps and obstacles crossing the ridge line that most people have to place their feet carefully on. Other than that, the trail is mostly clear of obstacles, doesn't have any very steep grades, and is well built. With tons of linkup and variations available, Blue Sky is not one to miss.

Note that there are a number of blind corners on Blue Sky and it can be crowded on weekends.
