Easy hike to the troll. More elevation than all trails says, but it was a beautiful day

Lovely trail. Great views and old mining camps. Not 100ft elevation gain. More like 500 ft

Did this hike on Friday morning. By far the most crowded hike I’ve done all week. Lots of foot traffic, and a lot of mountain bikes. Almost got run over by bikes several times. Probably not the best bike path this time of year as the trail is narrow in spots. With that said this trail is beautiful with colored aspens.

HikingGreat!

Easy hiking trail, nice surprise to find the troll in the area too for a good photo opportunity. Loved the change of color in the trees, big difference from the time we arrived on the 10th until the 20th when we left.

Absolutely gorgeous in September! Almost the entire hike is yellow and white. But watch out for cyclists. Some are kind and share the trail while others straight run you over!

great but the final 2 miles appear fenced off at least when I was following the map (maybe map needs to be updated). I got to the Breckenridge sawmill museum but not to the ice rink. when I get the chance I will start on ice rink side and see how far I get.

Amazing trail in the winter time! All down hill and snow packed so very easy to follow. If you did step off the trail though you’d sink a good 1-3ft into the snow. Saw some squirrels and a lot of rubs on the aspens.

This trail is appropriately named!! However, if you are looking for peak aspen conditions, you are too late (as of 10/4/19). Still a very nice walk with a few areas still peaking. Can’t wait to come back next year!

Pure magic walking through the golden Aspens! I waked it with my little dog around 9AM on a weekday and not many people of the trail yet (in fact, only 7 people). Lower part of the trail can be a little confusing...keep following signs for Illinois Creek High. Took bus back up to parking lot at Boreas Pass.

Fun hike. Pretty crowded on a Sunday morning, but the views and changing aspen were worth it.

Trail is beautiful but not well marked. I got to the first split and stayed to the left as it looked like the natural bend in the trail. I was recording the hike so a short time later, the app notified me that I was off the trail. Doubled back and went to the right at split. Again, a short time later, got another notice that I was off trail so doubled back again. Turns out the All Trails route appears to be closed at this time as there were trees lying across the trail. If I had more time I would've taken one of the other routes but had to go. Even with the confusion, a beautiful enjoyable hike. The Aspens are really popping in some sections right now too.

This trail ended up being about 3 miles from the start off of Boreas pass all the way down to the ice rink. Beautiful aspen trees along the trail and easy enough for family and kids. We started at the top and took the summit county free bus back up to near where we started.

Great trail - gorgeous aspen trees lining the trail and an awesome teepee next to an abandoned mine made the trip for my 9 year old son.

Loved aspen alley. Took free bus up to to silver queen stop and then had to ride up on main road to get to drop in spot. Lucky another biker told me to follow him. First half of trail was perfect and awesome. Second half was kind of hard to stay on trail. I went off when it started calling itself Illinois gulch I think. But loved the ride.

This was a great trail to hike if you are looking for something fairly easy and relaxing. My group parked at suggested start, which is on Boreas Road. The trail was very well kept, with multiple look out points. There were a lot of small up and downs, but nothing intense. You do share the path with bikers, but everyone is super nice and courteous. Once you hike down to the bottom, you end up at the Ice Rink parking lot. There is a free bus you can take part way up to the starting lot, but you still have to walk about a mile. I would also recommend starting before 10am. The trail gets crowded the closes you get to the Ice Rink and the closer to lunch it gets.

We hiked this on 7/25/19. Was a great wooded trail, some parts of it were along the highway that you could hear but was fine by us. It was a climb in places as I’m not very acclimated. At the end when the wooded area opened up, we saw a moose grazing in the meadow. He decided that he needed to walk the trail as well. We scurried out of his way behind a tree and watched him from a distance. Pretty crazy. We decided not to try to hike back on the same trail as we did not want to get in his way so we opted to take the mountain road back to the ice rink. Well just up the road on the way back we bumped into another moose on the road. Was crazy! But we minded our own, he minded his. Was an adventure.
