Started the trail at the John Denver sanctuary in Aspen, proceeded onto Oklahoma Flats and then Smuggler Mountain Road, ending at the Smuggler Mine. It was a fairly easy trail and an extremely beautiful and scenic route and seeing the old silver mine was very interesting. Loved seeing this trail beginning so close to downtown Aspen. Highly recommend it!
