Aspen's Best Early Season Hikes and Rides

Spring in Aspen means snowmelt is in full swing, lending a lovely green awakening to our beautiful mountain landscape. Though the melting and run off is great for the flora and fauna, it can make for some muddy trail conditions during the months of May and June. With careful planning, there are plenty of options to get out and enjoy hiking and biking during this time while avoiding still-sticky trails. Sun-exposed trails and dry roads will allow you to enjoy the burn of a good climb on foot or a bike.
