Hiked this today after attending the Aspen Music Festival free concert on top of Aspen Mountain. Truly spectacular scenes and an easy hike!

First to Review

Took an easy day today—took gondola up Aspen Mountain then enjoyed the views and hiked this nature trail. Was a good choice as it’s easy to get winded at the higher altitude especially for us visiting from GA. Easy hike and great vistas. Enjoyed by all!
