Trail shared by Jason Smith

Straight up the trail to the Ajax sundeck.

Jason Smith

Features Fall Colors · Views · Wildlife

Description

Continue on the trail after Ute Trail ends. Ute is by far the steepest part of the journey, so get into the flow & punch it to the top of Ajax. Bring beer money for a refreshment at the Sundeck restaurant, soak in the views & take the Silver Queen gondola right back to town.

Note that dogs are allowed to download the gondola, provided they are leashed. Be sure to check operating hours for the gondola in advance if you are looking for a ride down.
