The historical society has a jeep tour that is incredible. Our jeep driver I cannot say enough about her she was amazing and our guide was a gentleman and he too was sooo knowledgeable and nice. This is one thing everyone should do

This is a tough hike. It's up...straight up with a few switch backs on a dirt road. Full sun, too. The goal is an observation deck, which does have a fantastic view of 4+ beautiful peaks (14'ers!) that are backdrops to the city of Aspen....More

I hike Smuggler often with my puppy. Very active mountain and your sure to recognize someone while hiking it. Just be careful of the mountain bikers coming down with your dog.

The views from Smuggler Mountain of the town of Aspen are lovely. It is a different vantage point and the walk along the road is quite peaceful. Take lots of pictures as you can see 3 of the 4 mountains.

Once you have acclimatized to Aspen elevation at around 8000 ft, try the early morning walk up Smuggler Mountain Road. It's a good workout and gives you fabulous views of the valley of Aspen. It is quickly rewarding, but takes quite a bit of effort...More

Views are break-taking - if they aren't the climb certainly fits into that category! Several places to take spectacular photos

Just a few steps out of downtown is Smuggler Mt. whether you walk or mountain bike getting to the overlook is worth the effort. It is most amazing to look down on town and across the valley to Ajax. Do it in the morning and...More

This is a good hike and very popular with locals and tourists. You can actually drive in your car nearly all the way up but majority of people park on the parking lot all the way at the base and go up. Bikers use this...More
