This walk takes you through exquisite mountain meadows, along a roaring creek/river and spectacular mountain views. You can do anything to one mile out to 5 miles. Camping also available at the end of the trail.

First you start with Aspen's 300 days of sunshine and then enter the trail head at a small and often crowded parking area. Get there early. The first thing you encounter is a meadow of wild flowers and then you start a very modest ascent....More

You don’t have to hike the 8.5 miles to the hot springs to enjoy this hike with your family, although it is an incredible hike if you decide to hike all the way to Crested Butte and visit the hot spring pools half way. The...More
