“Dirt path following the old railroad route near downtown Aspen.”
— Mike Pritchard
This dirt path connects Koch (Volleyball) Park at the western end of Durant Ave to Hopkins Avenue. Hopkins Ave. serves as a signed bike route during warmer months, and connects to the East Marolt bike path and pedestrian bridge over Castle Creek a bit further to the west. Use this path to connect downtown Aspen to bike paths and trails west of town.
This route is a historic railroad alignment from Aspen's long gone mining era. There are a number of historical signs to check out along the path. You'll also find connections to the Little Cloud and Ajax trails along this path.
