Good, easier hike. Right off independence pass, just west of the pass high-point. Start is almost above tree level, so you dont have to go far to be above the trees. You can stop at the first lake, go up to the pass, and/over to...More

The wildflowers were abundant even in late August, and the trail wound through lovely meadows and overlooked some gorgeous falls. You can climb up to the pass, made a long loop, or just hike to the lake (which we did). Though the climb is upward...More

This is the best under ten mile hike we've ever experienced. Start at the upper parking area on 82 just below Independence Pass summit and hike to the lower parking area on 82 a couple miles down the road. First 3 miles of hike is...More

A quick, fairly easy trail, nice to hike this when you are still adjusting to the altitide. The forest is beautiful.

We did the upper trail. Two water crossings across a log. Weather can change quickly bring something warm and be prepared for rain. Beautiful terrain.

One of the more fun hikes that will take you past the reservoir and up the mountains. If you do the entire hike then it can be a bit challenging but highly suggest you do this if you are in the Aspen area.

Upper Lost Man is one of my favorite hiking trails in Aspen - the hike itself is above the tree-line along a small creek, and the vegetation around you with dozens of different wildflowers is breathtaking! Try and make it up to the "saddle" (about...More

This hike really called lost man loop as one can start lower down on highway 82/Independence pass, or higher up, and go in a loop coming out at the opposite point, which is why it's a good idea to leave a car at the opposite...More
