It’s first on the list of many local trail guides, not only because of its placement in the alphabet, but because it’s a great intermediate single-track mountain bike trail and a great hiking path, as well.
How to get there
Access from the south end begins a little ways up the road into Darby Canyon. A small parking area on the north side of the road gives access to the trail. Or, begin from the Rapid Creek area on the north end of the trail, which is accessed via Stateline Rd. and Spring Creek Rd. (near the intersection of 250 N east of Driggs).
The trail is a little less than 5 miles long, and can easily be hiked or ridden as an out-and-back loop of roughly 10 miles.
What it offers
The Aspen Trail offers small hills, stream crossings, rocks to hop over and plenty or views. A great place for intermediates of those new to riding in the area. If you’re into speed, watch for rocks!
Keep an eye out for bears, which have been sighted near the area, and make sure to yield to horses and hikers.
