Hunter Creek

Right through Aspen’s back door, this hike can be a very easy ramble through the Hunter Creek Valley meadows or can be lengthened and steepened to make a great half-day loop. An ACES naturalist will relay the rich natural and human history of the area. Views, ecological diversity and stories are what make this hike an Aspen favorite.
