Report: The Kinnickinnick and Sunlight hiking trails recently re-opened on Vail Mountain after having been closed for years due to construction projects including The 10th restaurant, Gondola One, and the Mountain Top Express Lift (Chair 4). The Kinnickinnick Trail takes hikers from Mid Vail to Wildwood at the top of Chair 3, and from there it’s a short walk down to the Eagle Bahn for those looking to ride both gondolas at Vail.
