This is a nice stop outside of Aspen. The rocks are amazing with nooks that you can climb inside. There are small waters falls and lots to see. Highly recommended stop.

Loved this hike right of Highway 82 about 10 miles outside of Aspen. Great picnic and short hike area - the ice caves were amazing and you could climb down into them (if the water level is low enough). Would love to go back in the winter and see what it looks like

This pretty hike is easy to moderate. Large, smooth boulders make this trail different than any other. I would suggest not taking small children, as there are some deep crevasses between the rocks.

Amazing trail, the grottos and the waterfalls. Most of it is flat, great for kids.Great spot for a picnic, follow the short trail right of the parking lot, there is a table at the end that overlooks the waterfalls.
