Amazing Sunrise Hike

This hike was absolutely gorgeous! There were already some wildflowers which made everything that much prettier. It's a huge open space so the dogs had a blast as well. Super easy and close to Denver so it made a perfect quick morning hike.

Definitely agree with a previous reviewer-- veer to the right at the entrance for those mountain views! There are a number of trail options and lengths, definitely check the maps! A fairly easy hike, good for beginners and children.

Start On The Right

Parking lot available. Parking is $5 - cash only. However if your vehicle is registered in Boulder county then it is free. Once you enter through the gates, I suggest veering towards the right to capture the mountain views. We started on the left side and our backs were to the mountains when we did the loop. It is not steep - fairly flat. Lots of bikers and walkers. Beautiful view.

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.
