Rainbow Trail: Highway 285 to Methodist Mountain THD

0.00 out of 5
View Topo Map


The Rainbow Trail runs for 10 miles from the junction with Highway 285 to the Methodist Mountain trailhead. The first several miles of this section are a steep hike climb up the ridge, followed by some additional difficult trail. However, once dropping down the gulch and making the turn (passing the descent to the Little Rainbow Trail Extension), the trail becomes much more singletrack-esque and spends significant time sidehilling.
Trail length: 10 miles
