Great views!

Hiked from the main parking lot up to the mining structures, then took the road that veers right at the top (south I believe), and went up and over the saddle. Not many people on that trail, and some great views!

Hot wildflower spot

Prime spot for wildflowers in mid-July and a great location for night photography.

Great Day Hike

This makes such a great day hike as well!

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.
