Great trail! Aspens about half turned. Got there yesterday at 6:30 AM and trail head was basically empty. Does get a bit strenuous around mile 1.5. You stop hearing I-70 around then as well. The trail splits about mile 2. I took the trail to the left which takes you up a pretty steep incline, which is definitely off the AllTrails map, but it was worth it because you get an amazing view of Torrey’s Peak. Wandered east to get back on the trail and headed to the end of the trail where there is an amazing view. If you stick to the right when the trail splits around mile 2 you’ll follow it based on this map.
