Skyline Trail connects Aspen Vista to the summit of Deception Peak (12,250’). The trail can be ridden as an out and back for the great views or can be linked with the fearsome Raven’s Ridge. From the last switchback on Aspen Vista look for a small singletrack disappearing off into the woods to the north, this is Skyline. Very quickly the trail begins climbing steeply before breaking out above treeline towards the summit. Unless you are a golden god, some of this section will be hike a bike. The trail reaches the summit and technically continues on towards Lake Peak, however this section enters Wilderness (and isn’t even remotely rideable anyway).
