The fall in Aspen is such a great time of year… There are no crowds, the leaves are changing, the hiking, biking and fishing are all at their peak and best of all there is parking! If you are coming to town definitely take advantage of the scenery, hiking Ajax, Buttermilk or any of the other Aspen area hikes can be very rewarding.

One of my favorites is Red Butte. This particular hike is less popular than many of the other hikes in the area, but the scenery is beautiful and it is an unusual vantage point as you have 360 degreee views of the entire area including Aspen Mountain, Buttermilk, Aspen Highlands, and Red Mountain. If biking is your preferred mode there are lots of options from mild to wild. For a scenic but easy ride with the whole family go from Aspen to Basalt on the Rio Grande trail. More on the areas biking in future posts.
