One of my favorite hikes in Aspen. It is a moderate hike and my app calculated a total distance of 6.5 miles in and out. The initial 1.5 miles has the steepest incline followed by a slower incline. I would not recommend doing this trail as one of the first hikes in Aspen. Bring some bug spray, water, snacks and a camera. Pace yourself and enjoy the magnificent views and wildflowers.
