“Rio En Medio” translates to “river in the middle,” and that’s exactly what you will find biking along this refreshing trail. Water cascades alongside the trailhead at Aspen Basin and all the way to the end of this out- and- back trail at Aspen Ranch. The Rio En Medio is a great trail if you’re looking to find solitude from the crowds of Santa Fe. There are many shallow pools to cool off in, and plenty of plant and animal life may be found all along this unique trail. From the Aspen Basin Trailhead, the Rio En Medio is a constant descent for most of its length to Aspen Ranch, so your return ride will be mostly uphill. But with the coolness of the water and shade of the trees, the ascent is a pleasant one.
