Ridge Route Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Ridge Route climbs steadily but easily up a ridge to Wildwood, one of Vail’s high points. Along the way you cross several ski runs filled with wildflowers underlining views of Mount of the Holy Cross and Mount Jackson. At Wildwood enjoy the vista of the rugged Gore Range around the building’s corner."
