Description

Both of these trails are the most popular and accessible options at Pajirito. Aspen For Trouble is steeper, longer, and more technical than Aspeñola. However, Aspen For Trouble starts just to the right of the lift at the top of the mountain. You'll pass a large pond then begin a fast descent consisting of several switchbacks. Follow the trail down to the lower lift. There are a few slick and rocky sections but the switchbacks are where you need to be very careful. The trail intersects several roads and other trails, so it is easy to get turned around.
