Description

This short trail connects the paved bike paths near Marolt Open Space and the Roundabout entrance to Aspen to the Tiehack Bridge. The terrain is gently rolling sage brush with abundant wildflowers and provides some great views of Pyramid Peak in the distance. Pyramid is a notable 14er accessed via Maroon Creek Rd.

Find the eastern end of this singletrack trail on the west side of the bike path bridge that crosses over Maroon Creek Rd. The southwest end connects to the Aspen Recreation Center (ARC) baseball fields and the Tiehack Bridge. On the other side of this impressive steel arch pedestrian bridge, spanning the Maroon Creek, you'll find the Government trail and the Maroon Creek trail.

The Moore Open Space also allows for a short beginner loop ride within the property, using a trail segment just to the north of this more often traveled route.
