Trail Description

A short but sweet route along Brush Creek, the Nature Trail travels through lush riparian zones, wildflower filled meadows, and aspen and conifer stands, providing a small example of most ecosystem types found nearby in the surrounding Rocky Mountains. The Nature Trail is rated advanced for it's technical challenges for mountain bikers, but is not too terribly challenging for hikers. Please note that the Nature Trail is closed to Mountain Biking daily between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. for Aspen Center for Environmental Studies guided nature hikes. The Nature Trail lies on a narrow easement, so please stay on the trail and respect the private property that lies to either side of the trail. Dogs must be on leash at all times on all Town trails, and please be courteous and clean up after your dog. Leash law strictly enforced.
