A day loop through the high country near Mount Lemmon. This trail offers a popular day loop through high montane country from the Marshall Gulch Picnic Area. It is often crowded during summer and early autumn, especially on weekends. The aspen stands for which the trail is named are among the largest in the state, and put on a brief fall color display that generally peaks in late October. The trail begins on a southward bearing as it climbs the slopes above the west bank of Sabino Creek. After a short distance, a rocky overlook just below the trail offers views of the granite-walled canyon, sprinkled liberally with tall ponderosa pines. The path turns westward into a moist swale. This level glade is populated by groves of quaking aspen, their stately colonnades capped by clouds of bright-green leaves that tremble in the slightest breeze. The dark green spires of spruce and fir rise in the midst of the aspens, thrown into high relief by lighter foliage surrounding them.
