Aspen Trail Finder is a comprehensive trail index, built for everyone looking for adventure outdoors – walkers, hikers, runners, road bikers, mountain bikers equestrians and dog lovers. We don’t like telling people which trails to do or only looking at what experts say are the best. There’s adventure finding new trails and your favorite trail might not be ours. Everyone’s different and different sports provide different ways to experience and enjoy a trail.
Aspen Trail Finder covers everything around Aspen, Snowmass Village, Basalt, Carbondale, Glenwood Springs, Redstone, and Marble. Those areas encompass lands in Pitkin County, Eagle County, Garfield County, Gunnison County, State Wildlife Area, Bureau of Land Management (BLM), White River National Forest, Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness, Raggeds Wilderness, Collegiate Peaks Wilderness, Hunter-Fryingpan Wilderness, and Holy Cross Wilderness.
Government agencies, counties, and towns all try to cover their own areas separated by invisible lines. Here are some of those resources. This site removes those drawn lines and makes it easy for you to find a trail and share your adventure with others.
You can read a book and know everything there is about a trail, but we aren’t about spoilers. Get out, explore, and find something new. Every day is different, weather is unpredictable, the views and experience are amazingly unique to each person. We show you where to start your adventure.
Many trails have multiple starting points, we know that. Trails connect to other trails and sometimes those connectors are just sidewalks, roads, or unnamed paths. We try to make it easy and give you a starting point to find a trail, so you can explore and find what’s out there.
Trail distances on this site are measured one-way (unless otherwise noted). So, if you are going the entire length of the trail and coming back, just double the distance and you will have your roundtrip mileage. Circumstances change and sometimes going the entire distance isn’t a smart idea, this one-way mileage gives you an idea of how far points are.
Aspen Trail Finder is mobile friendly and designed to go with you out on the trail. This will help you find a starting point, rate and comment on your adventures. Give us a test. Remember, not all trails have cell service, plan and be prepared with a good map before you go.
We provide a local, independent, hub of information for the area’s trails. Use our search tools to find trails for hiking, biking, running, and much more. We hope you find a new trail and share that joy of finding new trails with others too. Enjoy!
