Aspens are at their peak and starting to drop their leaves. Walked from Highway 285 trailhead in 1.5 miles and back. Easy incline and amazing views. The trail is very busy with hikers, families, photographers, bikers and dogs.

My father-in-law and I hiked this today 3 miles from the trailhead and back. Pretty level hike with some great views of snow-capped mountains, wildflowers and aspen trees. Only saw a group of 4 & a guy riding a horse during our 4 hour hike.

We plan on coming here again!

Tons of aspens, definitely coming back in the fall. No water on miles 9-14. Amazing panoramas, bring a good camera!

We split this up in 3 sections. A lot tree cover. Not a lot of traffic
