Description

A crowd favorite, the Wildflower Trail is a singletrack route to the top of Bridger Gondola that starts similar to the Lower Faces trail run. Enjoy incredible views of the valley plus an abundance of wildflowers that blanket the mountainside during the summer. Most of the resort, including the Aerial Tram, is also visible along much of the run.

One-way, the trail is just shy of 4 miles and includes plenty of switchbacks to make the climbing more gradual. According to the resort, there are several benches and even a picnic table so that you can stop and catch your breath along the way.

If you're looking for a longer run, the Cirque Trail connects the Bridger Gondola to the Aerial Tram at the top of Rendezvous Mountain. From here, you could take the Tram back to the trailhead. Alternatively, consider this epic run that leads through Granite Canyon and connects back to the base of the resort.
