Aspen trail splits off to right but not groomed. We hiked it in winter. Went up about 1.2 miles and trail became indiscernible so we stopped and went back. It may have been the end of the trail anyway. Had to park on road because road to trailhead had not been plowed. Nice because no snow machines. Very quiet & peaceful.
This was a nice little hike for our family. We wanted to hike Darby Canyon, but ran into too much snow about a half mile in. Having passed this trail on the way in, we drove back and gave this one a try. It was a nice hike for the family. There were lots of signs of animals on the trail. There were even some signs of mountain bikers. We past a single hiker another group of 4. Other than that it was pretty quiet.
I may come back to bike this trail without the kids.
