    Directions to Trailhead

    The Highline Creek Trail is a laidback route in Snowmass Village, Colorado that traverses a hillside with views of the surrounding ski resort. While out hiking the trail, you will make your way along the slope of the hill and pass through some forest cover, while taking in the views of the surrounding alpine landscape. Hikers should take note that this route is also used by mountain bikers, so make sure to keep an eye out and share the trail.

    Route Description for Highline Creek Trail

    If you find yourself in the Snowmass Village area and need to get out on an easy trail to stretch your legs, then you should check out the Highline Creek Trail. This route isn’t the most scenic in the area, but it does offer some nice views overlooking the golf course and Snowmass Village.

    Setting out from the trailhead along Owl Creek Road, you will make your way to the northwest along the hillside and pass through some areas of light tree cover. Here, you will have some nice views over Brush Creek, the Snowmass Golf Club, and the village further afield. As you loop around the trail and begin the return leg, take some time to appreciate the beauty of the landscape and breathe in the fresh mountain air, before arriving back at the trailhead where you began.
