A trail with a ton of potential but, currently, little reward.

Overview

Closed to bikes Oct 1 - May 15th.

Description

Aspen Flat can be accessed from the north or south. The southern trailhead is reached by driving a long ways up FR 079 from N. Creek Rd. (101). This option is probably more suitable for lower clearance vehicles. Higher clearance and 4x4 or AWD is recommended for the northern trailhead.

The scenery along this trail is outstanding. Massive aspen groves are bisected by beautiful pastures with stellar views. All of that said, the trail itself isn't the most suited for mountain bikes. The grade is very steep in places and the trail mostly follows the fall line. Also, given its remote and underused nature, expect to find your fair share of downed trees along this trail.

A little disclaimer... when I rode this trail, it had just seen some heavy rain. It wasn't super muddy, but it was a bit blown out and covered in forest debris (doesn't see much traffic). Assuming it rides better when there is less downfall and less moisture, the routing (fall line) would still make this a fairly tough/unrewarding trail.
