“A steep dirt road connecting Castle Creek Road to the Sundeck on top of Aspen Mountain.”
— Mike Pritchard
The road is open to motorized use.
This doubletrack road connects Castle Creek Rd. all the way up to the Sundeck. It can be used as part of a loop ride from town with Aspen Mt. Summer Road
. There are many long steep sections, but the views at the Sundeck restaurant's deck are worth the effort. Although there are some Aspen tree sections, most of the road travels through dark timber forests.
Descending the road can be a rush given the many steep sections, but beware of the tight turns with loose rocks.
At about 2/3 of the way up from the bottom, watch out for intersections and signage; you have the option of joining Little Annie Road
and continuing up to Richmond Ridge Road
