5.1 Miles Round Trip - 324 ft gain - Loop Trail

Hildebrand Ranch Park - Search Nearby - Added by Ben Beyers

This overlooked Jefferson County park offers more than it seems at first glance. Less than an hour away from Denver, easy trails, and connects to Deer Creek Canyon Park.

Hildebrand Ranch Park is often overshadowed by the other nearby Jeffco Parks, but for the few that it does attract the trails do not disappoint.  

The Two Brands Trail starts at about 5600ft just off of Deer Creek Canyon Rd.  It is a relatively flat trail that tops out at about 5821ft making it an overall pretty relaxed trail.  The 5.1 mile loop starts at the parking lot and climbs up to and then along the hogback.

At about the halfway marker, the first switchback of the Black Bear Trail climbs about 800ft up the hogback.   This trail, recently completed, connects Deer Creek Canyon Park and Hildebrand Ranch.

Stay on your toes

Great area for an early morning jog on the 5 mile loop. However, please be aware of rattlesnakes.

Summer, a season not to be missed in Aspen!

"I came for the winter, and stayed for the summer," is a phrase you'll often hear around town.  The weather is one of the highlights. During the day the temperature hovers in the 70's and 80's, and by evening the mercury will drop into the 60's. Arts & culture enthusiasts will be just as fulfilled as the adventure junkie during summer in Aspen.  The events calendar abounds with activities for everyone, from cultural events to athletic pursuits.

Experiencing all Aspen has to offer is as easy as opening the front door. Join us for a summer adventure that’s anything but ordinary.
