Drove my 2016 4Runner Limited up this trail and it was a blast. I would rate it as easy. The views were great and it was so fun to drive up the slope. When we got to the top of the lift area we continued onto Little Annie Rd and went all the way down to Castle Creek Rd and took that back into Aspen.

Drove most of this trail in a Jeep Patriot. There is no way this trail is "easy", as it is very steep and dangerous. Road is fairly rocky all the way to the top. I would not go on this road alone again without a partner. You essentially scale the ski mountain all the way to the top for a spectacular view of Aspen!!! The reason I gave it a there is because it just a back and forth road up the side of the mountain.
