Aspen Mass Trail Description

The Aspen Mass Trail connects two communitiesAspen and Snowmass Villagein the Roaring Fork Valley. Although not very long, the paved trail offers a key connection between two trails. At its northern end is the 42-mile Rio Grande Trail that heads up to Glenwood Springs, and at its southern end is the Brush Creek Trail that winds its way to the restaurants, shops, and attractions of Snowmass Village.

At the trail's north end, you'll also find Jaffee Park. With its locale on the banks of the Roaring Fork River, the park is popular with fishermen, rafters, and kayakers, as well as a nice spot to picnic.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available near the north end of the trail in Jaffee Park (off McLain Flats Road). At the trail's southern end, parking is available in the Brush Creek Intercept Lot off Highway 82.

Nice Afternoon Ride

Wife and I completed a nice loop ride near Aspen. Parked on edge of Woody Creek and rode Rio Grande Trail towards Aspen, exited trail to go through the Wilton Jaffee Sr Park connecting with the Aspen Mass Transit Trail to the Brush Creek Park & Ride along Hwy 82. Crossed the highway for the Brush Creek Trail up to Snowmass Village. Steady climb up into the main part of the village. Very good trail. From the village back tracked to the Owl Creek Trail following it down to the west side of the Aspen Pitkin Airport, trail has some very steep uphill and downhill sections but pretty well maintained. This connected us to Aspen Airport Business Center Trail, made right turn towards Aspen for connection with Cemetery Lane Trail. At turn off for Cemetery Lane we spotted a sign offering free bike bells if stop at Aspen Parks & Recreation, which is right off the side of the trail. After getting a couple bike bells and nice cold drink of water, headed down Cemetery Lane Trail to Rio Grande Trail. Making a right on Rio Grande Trail followed to John Denver Sanctuary along the Roaring Fork River in Aspen. Made a U-turn and headed down the Rio Grande Trail back to Woody Creek. All this was on paved trail (except short distance through Jaffee Park) with only a few road crossings. Very enjoyable ride with some great scenery. Will do this one again.
