Great hike, shady half way up then turns steep with very little shade. Definitely hard if your not use to the elevation but you get to ride the gondola down for free if you hike to the top of Aspen mountain.

Definitely not moderate if Sunnyside is rated hard, 2.5 miles of constant uphill. It's beautiful and a wonderful reward at the two points to look out.

Difficult climb at points. Narrow pathways. A great workout. Beautiful views. Awesome!

Well traveled trail just outside of Aspen. Gorgeous views from the top. Not for those who are squeamish about heights. Steep areas and winding trails. I went alone (female) and felt comfortable. (was early morning right after Labor Day and all tourists were gone) yay!

Very nice trail. A little crowded even for a Tuesday morning hike so I wouldn't rate it a five star but it is a very nice hike with a nice view at the top. I would also rate this a moderate hike not easy. If you are used to the altitude it will be an easy moderate but many going up were breathing pretty hard and stopping often. Either way. Well worth the walk.

Steep and busy. I started around 10am on a Wednesday and passed about 30 people on the way up. Great view of the town. Take and extra bottle of water and a bar and hike it all the way to the top of Aspen Mtn.

Awesome payoff at the top! I would not rate this as an Easy trail unless you are accustomed to hiking at this altitude. It's steep and rocky and beautiful - well worth repeating over and over.
