Easy to moderate hike. Gravel road almost the entire route. This connects to several hikes as well. Great views of Aspen and nearby mountains.

It’s basically a windy gravel road up a little mountain! It has LOTS of incredible views and even an observation deck and bench where you can stop for a bit. The trail is well kept and easy to navigate but i probably wouldn’t do this one again bc it was just a little too easy. Great for beginners though! And also great for dogs off leash!!

Took the hunter creek trail up and looped around to smuggler on the way down. Views of the mountains with ski runs and downtown aspen below were so beatific on sunny day. Snow made it a little muddy but snow views were worth it! Uh-ohh somersault jump!
