The south half of Richmond Hill Road is very high and the road ahead can be seen for long distances, making for great pictures. The north half is mostly in the trees. Great views coming down Aspen Summer Road under the moving gondola. Have lunch at public picnic tables near top of gondola or walk into town from bottom. You’ll start above timberline at Taylor Pass and climb even higher as you go over Richmond Hill. When the road enters the trees, you’ll encounter more ruts and possible muddy spots. Aspen Summer Road is well maintained, but you may have to share the road with an occasional service truck.
