  • Good hike. You are basically walking up a road - not a trail. The views of Aspen are really good once you get up there.

  • I used to enjoy smuggler but not so much anymore due it it being too crowded with people who talk more than they hike and stop for selfies every 40ft. If you can talk you're not hiking hard enough. There are much better hikes in the area.

  • Great trails at the top of the access road. Worth the suffer time!

  • popular hiking trail. Close to town.

  • The most beautiful views of aspen!
