Aspen Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The Aspen Trail is a short but very scenic day hike to a viewpoint overlooking the rugged Wilderness of Rocks area and the Pusch Ridge Wilderness. This is another cool hike during the summer, and a good place to see fall color as the aspens change in October. There is an exceptionally good viewpoint on the small hill just southwest of the trail at 1.6 miles. From this vantage, you can see much of the well-named Wilderness of Rocks to the southwest. From the trailhead, start the hike on the Marshall Gulch Trail, which ascends Marshall Gulch west past Huntsman Spring to Marshall Saddle and a multiple-trail junction. 50 Best Easy Day Hikes TucsonTake the leftmost trail, the Aspen Trail, which heads south around Marshall Peak. Continue the hike on the Aspen Trail, which heads east as it continues around Marshall Peak, then descends a ridge to return to the Marshall Gulch Trailhead."
