Aspen Vista is a great endurance ride with a constant but gradual gain in elevation until you reach the summit of Tesuque Peak at 12,040 feet. The trail contours along the Sangre De Cristo Mountain Range. As the trail climbs it passes through aspen-covered forests, crosses small rushing creeks, and offers expansive views around every corner. The best time of year to ride this trail is during fall, when the turning foliage paints the views in majestic hues of orange and yellow. Fall is also the busiest time of year on the Aspen Vista Trail, but it is wide and can easily accommodate a large crowd.
