Need to Know

You'll need to pay for lift access and lift hours are subject to Pajarito Ski Area guidelines.

Description

Pajarito is known for its highly technical and "raw" all mountain experience. As such, many of the trails are highly technical. However, the popular and fun Aspeñola trail is the most accessible route for those new to the Pajarito experience. With that in mind, this trail is still pretty technical and is accented by some steep and rocky sections, so use caution when riding.

This trail starts at the top of the mountain. As soon as you get off the lift and collect your bike, ride toward the dirt road straight ahead (the road to the left and the Aspen For Trouble trail to the right will not take you to Aspeñola). The road will veer off to the left and you'll see the entrance to the singletrack. Simply follow the singletrack and the Aspeñola signs down the mountain.
