“A trail with big views, a new highlight for the Snowmass area trail system!”
— Mike Pritchard
Seasonal closure December 1 - May 15.
The Seven Star Trail starts from the intersection with the North Rim Trail. For a shorter loop, and more direct connection, start at Town Park (aka Rodeo Lot, aka Snowmass Recreation Center parking lot), and climb the North Rim Trail to this intersection, or find the bottom of the trail northeast of the parking lot and tennis courts.
When runed in the downhill direction, you'll encounter an initial traversing section that includes panoramic views of Snowmass and Sky Mt. Park and the mountainous horizon beyond. As the trail descends it follows a seemingly endless amount of turns through scrub oak terrain, until finally arriving at a large sage brush meadow and a final traverse above Brush Creek wetlands on the way back to the Town Park Trailhead.
While it's north of Brush Creek Rd., the trail is actually part of Sky Mt. Park, managed by Pitkin County Open Space and Trails. The town of Snowmass Parks & Trails and RFMBA were also funding partners for the trail constructed by Tony Boone Trails late 2016.
