Description

The Rim Trail South has great views of the Elk Range Mountains and connects to the Rim Trail North. There are often many bikers along the trail, so keep your wits about you, especially in the switchbacks. The Rim Trail South also has a connector to Spiral Point where there is a yin-and-yang platform that looks out to Capitol Peak and Old Snowmass Village.

At one point along the trail, enjoy an interesting traverse across a loose, shaley hillside. You don't want to slip here!

Flora & Fauna

Be bear aware on this trail, as they often enjoy eating the local berries that grow on the blind side of switchbacks.
