There are lots of road biking options in Aspen. “Most Popular” doesn’t always mean best, but it does mean these are the trails people are biking a lot. Here are 5 of the most popular road biking options in Aspen:
Castle Creek Road is an amazing stretch through the Castle Creek Valley to the Ashcroft Ghost Town. The road provides a fairly constant climb, though never really too steep, with lots of aspens along the way.
The road to Independence Pass is extremely difficult. The road is narrow, offering little or no shoulder at times, there are many cars traveling over the pass in the summer, and it is a constant tough climb. It’s also completely gorgeous.
