Pretty hike along the creek, some nice views of Aspen once you hit the service road. Difficulty is quite subjective, but most of the hike is dirt roads, not technical.

Amazing hike that is so close to town. We decided to hike to the observation deck and head back down the same way as it provided a bit more shade while hiking with the dog. Amazing views... highly recommend.

Great trail.. I recommend doing the first half to the top and return back the same way down.. We went all the way; down the smugglers road, but was more just a service road and nothing to special
