Was a fun hike. Steep and fairly shaded for a hot day

Very nice trail. A little crowded even for a Tuesday morning hike so I wouldn't rate it a five star but it is a very nice hike with a nice view at the top. I would also rate this a moderate hike not easy. If you are used to the altitude it will be an easy moderate but many going up were breathing pretty hard and stopping often. Either way. Well worth the walk.

Awesome hike for a quick but still strenuous workout. Great view of Aspen and the valley at the top.

Steep and busy. I started around 10am on a Wednesday and passed about 30 people on the way up. Great view of the town. Take and extra bottle of water and a bar and hike it all the way to the top of Aspen Mtn.

Awesome payoff at the top! I would not rate this as an Easy trail unless you are accustomed to hiking at this altitude. It's steep and rocky and beautiful - well worth repeating over and over.
