This ride incorporates the widely popular Grand Traverse Trail on Vail Mountain to access the more obscure Cougar Ridge Trail to Minturn. Via the Village Trail, riders get an overview of the Vail Ski Resort, as it winds its mellow way from the base of the Vista Bahn Express Lift to the top of Eagle's Nest. From there, two miles along the Grand Traverse Trail deliver stellar views of the Sawatch Range and the Mount of the Holy Cross. After picking up the unpatrolled Cougar Ridge Trail, the rider is afforded a blasting descent to Minturn before connecting with U.S. 24 and the Vail Bike Path back to your vehicle. Terrain: Dirt access road, paved road, paved bicycle path and singletrack. Most of the terrain is smooth and non-technical, however, the Cougar Ridge portion offers a variety of roots, rocks and washboards.
