This is a must do if you want a nice, relatively easy (if you're in shape) hike for those new to Aspen and new to higher elevations. It is so scenic and beautiful. There is an observation deck at the top.

Yes, you can. But there is also a wonderful bus transportation system RFTA. You can take a free shuttle bus to the trail from Rubey Park Transit Center in town.
