  3. If you were to ask a local Aspen mountain biker where to go mountain biking, they would tell you to head up “Smuggs” or Smuggler Mountain to Hunter Creek Valley trails. The Smuggler to Hunter Creek Valley is a well-traveled Aspen mountain biking route that provides opportunities for one-hour to five-hour rides, like Four Corners.

  5. If you’re looking for a full-day of mountain biking (or hiking), Smuggler to Four Corners is Aspen’s best option. This profile will explore the route from a mountain biking perspective, but it’s also a great hike for the adventurous-minded. Mountain bikers can choose to stick with the standard 12-mile route or make it as long as 19 miles with several challenging add-ons.

  6. The Rim Trail, located right outside of Snowmass Resort, is a beautiful, is non-technical loop featuring fun, flowy single track and spectacular views of the surrounding Elk Mountain Range. This is great trail for beginner riders or anyone looking for a fun, not-too-challenging ride. The climbs are very rideable, and the descents are smooth and fast.
