Starting off of Boreas Pass Road, we found a trail head for Aspen Alley and decided to check it out. The hike was mostly in the shade and mostly down-hill through many aspen stands. We came across many mountain bikers who were all very friendly. There were great views of the Breckenridge ski slopes and a ton of cool, old mining equipment. At the bottom, there was a outdoor self-guided mining museum and you could look at all the old machines. We continued on to another trail that took us to the parking lot of the Ice Rink and got a ride pack to the top to get our car. It would be a lot more difficult to go hike back up!
