Amazing views from the top! Not for a beginner as the incline is fairly relentless but worth it. My advice would be to grab a beer at the top to reward yourself and ride the gondola down!

This was harder than I anticipated, but worth it. Gondola down made it rewarding!
It took two hours for me to get to the top.
Great views!

Unbelievable hike up to the top of Aspen Mountain! The 19 switchbacks aren't difficult, but once you pass the swing and lookout point it gets super steep and much harder. It took me about 2 hours in total to get to the top, about 40 minutes for the switchbacks, and it felt SO good to take the gondola down. Definitely bring a lot of water and snacks because the whole thing kicks your butt and you'll need a lot of fuel.
