All I can say is WOW! This is one of the most scenic and beautiful trails I have ever been on. The majority of the trail is right along the river, walking amongst the aspen trees. If you are in Aspen, do yourself a favour, and visit this amazing spot!

If you are looking for a easy hike near Aspen, this one is great. We traversed Hunter Creek several times with excellent views. There are also enormous local houses along the first part of the trail. We went in late April, so it was not crowded.
