The Mayfly trail in Snowmass Village is the perfect place to take a quick break and get away. The trail is short but very scenic as well as relaxing. This is a nice little trail hidden from all the bustle of Snowmass Village. 

Located in Snowmass Village CO, this trail is nestled between Brush Creek and Brush Creek Road.

Drive your vehicle to Clark's Market (16 Kearns rd Aspen, CO) and park in the lot facing down valley looking towards Woodbridge Condominiums. Along the edge of Clark's parking lot there will be a dirt trail that will lead you down hill towards the Woodbridge Condominiums parking lot. In between this parking lot and Brush Creek Road you will see a sign on the right hand side that says Mayfly trail and steps soon after. This is the start of the trail and you can follow it all the way down until it ends at the bus stop by Owl Creek road. At this point you can turn around and hike back making the total hike about half a mile. 

*Please note that portions of this trail can become muddy.

The trail follows Brush Creek and you can hear the running water as you walk. On several parts of the trail you will find picnic tables scattered around in the woods making it a fun little place to stop and eat lunch. Overall this is by no means a strenuous hike, it is perfect for walking your dog, going for a run or just a quick stroll through the woods.
