This is our fourth time hiking to the top of Ajax aka Aspen Mountain. I did the hike with my two kids ages 8 and 10 and we've done it before when they were 6 and 8. This is definitely a difficult hike for those not in shape or not used to the elevation like us, but it can be done. It took us 3 hours to get to the top. We started on the Ute Trail, which has a great overlook after about 45 minutes climbing. If you hike to the top you can take the gondola down for free. There's a beautiful restaurant at the top and has something for everyone. They have a lot of fun climbing structures for kids, frisbee golf, and a bungee jumping thing. In the restaurant they have ping pong tables and board games, all of these being free of charge. ACES offers free guided hikes from the top. We've never done it but I've heard they're great.
