Hike and Mountain Bike

Aspen Trail (tr 034) is single track trail for 4.35 miles along 6,800 ft contour to Darby Canyon (tr 012). Spring Creek Trail (tr 032) is double track trail for 3.68 miles to end.

The trail starts up a doubletrack heading east out of the parking lot. 1/4 mile in, take the fork to the right. It's singletrack from here to the other end at Darby Canyon. Some sections are smooth and fast, others are rocky and boulder strewn. Probably not a trail for a first timer, but any intermediate can do it. It can be done as an out and back to Darby Canyon, or you can go west out of the Canyon to Stateline road, and take the road back to where you started. Courtesy of Singletracks.com

Never modify trail features. Ride trails when they're dry enough that you won't leave ruts. Speak up when you see others on the trail and always yield to hikers, horses, and others coming uphill. Always ride on the established trail.
