Hiking the UTE TRAIL Aspen
Hiking the Ute Trail Aspen, Colorado. The final hike of my October 2020 trip to Aspen, Colorado.
The Ute Trail is a 6.2 mile out and back hike that starts on the southeast side of the city of Aspen. It is one of the most popular trails in the entire area. The first mile of the Ute Trail is a steep 700 foot climb that leads to Ute Rock. Here you will be treated to a panoramic view of Aspen and the surrounding beauty of the Rocky Mountains! If you continue on and complete the next 2 miles you will have hiked up some of the most expert ski terrain Aspen Hill has to offer. At the top of Aspen (Ajax) Mountain you can stop in to the Sundeck and enjoy a cold beer as a reward for your hard work. The views from the top are also great! We opted to ride the Silver Queen Gondola back down to Aspen so our hike ended at 3.1 miles. Far enough for us as this hill is a beast! I would highly recommend this hike but be prepared to tire out if you aren’t acclimated to Aspens elevation!
