Much more challenging than expected, but great. A beer at the top and Gondola down makes it all worth it.

Would not rate this hike as moderate. Great hike, beautiful views, and close to town. Take the free gondola down to save save your knees. Took 2hours with breaks and some strawberry picking along the way :). First part of the trail up to the big lookout rock is fairly busy, but after that we only came across a couple people on the trail. It was a week day so the weekend might be different.

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.

Great trail!

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.
