Project Description: 

This 20 mile, multi-use trail connects the West Summit of Rabbit Ears Pass to Pete's Wicked Trail on the Steamboat Ski Area.  At roughly  9200 feet, the trail has very little elevation gain, or loss, making it very beginner friendly from both directions, or as an out and back.  Its name comes from Walton Creek Canyon, which the trail circumnavigates as it cruises along the canyon's north and south rim.  The Walton Rim Trail also offers grand vistas of the canyon and Yampa Valley below.
