That hike is over 40 miles from Aspen. Stay in town, there's a zillion great hikes right out of Aspen or after a very short drive.

We did, but we were fishing in April. Don't know the CO regs or if what you have to do in April is the same as when you will be there.
Stop and check out the Grotto along Independence Pass, and there's plenty of other trails to hike along the Pass. Linkin's Lake trail not too far from the Continental Divide turnoff, you can hike up past the lake and it ends up at at an old mining shack at around 11,500 feet.
Ranked #8 of 94 things to do in Aspen by Lonely Planet travellers. One of the most popular summer playgrounds in Aspen, the area is accessed via a complex of short trails (most about half a mile in length) that sprout from old Weller Station on the original Indepe...

If you are a fan of Hunter Thompson, go just outside town to Woody Creek. Hang out at the Woody Creek Tavern and ask for Hunter' salt whaker. (Filled with cocaine.)
All that water is gold medal and therefore catch and release.......
Best deal imo.
It's a great deal........Hook up with a guide service. They'll set you up with the right gear, tie the right fly on for you, point where to cast and you will catch fish.
Thanks for all the tips. This is going to help out tremendously.

Noted. Plus, I think I'm having dinner, or drinks, or dinner and drinks, at his place.
Oh, and I forgot to mention the best part of being in Aspen. You're not in Vail.
It's my goal to one day fully appreciate this comment.
Aspen in the summertime is fantastic. I actually like it better in the Summer than the Winter. You absolutely have to go fly fishing on the Roaring Fork. Take a trip to Maroon Bells. Hiking and bike-riding along the extensive paved and unpaved trails between Aspen, Aspen Highlands and Snowmass is fantastic. Visit Anderson Ranch Arts center near Snowmass. Horseback riding. There are many great restaurants and bars in the area, not just in Aspen itself. Check out Woody Creek, Snowmass Village, etc Glenwood Springs has some attractions if your idea of civilization is having a WalMart. Drive over Independence Pass if you don't have any fear of heights or vertigo. Take a ski lift to the top of Ajax and hike down. If you get really bored, it isn't that far of a drive to Durango to the South or Vail to the NorthEast. The possibilities are endless. Enjoy.
You're feeding one of my earlier posts back to me. First time I fished was on the Pan. Guide was a guy from back east, maybe CT. He and the friend I was at a conference with had to talk me into getting a license and giving it a shot. By the end of the day I was asking how much I was looking at for gear.
Fished the Roaring Fork and the Frying Pan a couple summers ago and both were phenomenal. We were there during the green drake hatch and the fish were very cooperative. Only bad part about the Frying Pan are the "private" posted portions...Colorado is strange in that landowners can own the river bed, so there is no high water mark rule. They take that shit seriously.
You really love taking pics of your jeep huh?
It's not that deep.......but, when you're in Aspen you'll notice that there is not an interstate running through the middle of town......
Get to know the Weiss family while you're there. They own some of the most fantastic private sections of the Roaring Fork. Even the guides are jealous (and impressed) if you can get permission to fish on their property. It's not as hard as it sounds, actually.
Yeah, that's why I stick to OR/ID/MT for fishing. Think CO stocking policies are piss poor also.
Haha that was like the first week I got it and I created the album to show family.
But, but ,but, I kinda like Vail (summertime only) cuz I love all the mountain golf in the area. What views, I sometimes forgot why I'm there and would just awe,plus I liked the feeling on being able to hit my 9 iron about 190 yds.
Aspen > Vail, but Vail is fun too. The Teva games at Vail make for a fun family outing. Normally crowds drive me crazy but we've had a lot of fun at the Teva games.
I tend to agree, but there are some great spots in North Central Colorado. Ever fish the N. Platte canyon north of Walden? It's a hike in, but worth it.
No, only the Aspen rivers. In love w/ the Northern Rockies and Yellowstone area. Have a cousin in Missoula and another in Bozeman, so I visit them as often as possible.
