Mountain Biking Aspen Alley
#232 of 1,354 mountain bike trails in Colorado
Aspen Alley is about 1.5 miles long one-way and generally forms the tail end of the Baker's Tank ride. However, it can be a great little ride on its own, and offers up great fall colors!

Beautiful, fast, flowy, and fun trail. Mostly smooth, with some berms, small jumps, and awesome views through aspen forests. Can be lapped from Boreas Pass Rd. or be part of a ride including other trails.Thank |
Great, flowy, bermy trail with beautiful fall colors!Thank |
Woohoo! Aspen Alley is mountain bike trail - rather than a shared trail - with features like berms, curves, little rollers and opportunities for a some air! The surface is smooth - the ride a delight! Can't think why but it's designated as two way but don't believe it - it's a ride to go down - not up! I rode it after the horrid Bakers Tank trail but that only accounts for some of my enthusiasm... This is a fun trail and it's a feast for the eyes too. It even has a little mining heritage interest part way down and there is a timber museum at the bottom. Don't miss it.Thank |
Intermediate riders won't find it threatening.
My first really fun Mountain Bike Trail. I personally, however, would not consider it to be a black diamond. At the trail head, it says the trail is a blue but on the map it states it to be a black. Nevertheless, this trail has many steep downhills that can go into some pretty crazy switch backs. This trail is really dang fun and it feels it goes by too quickly. This was my second mountain bike trail I have ever ridden and there were no parts I felt like I needed to walk through. The trail is very smooth and soft so you don't have to worry about any unforeseen obstacles that can through you off track. You still need to be confident on sharp turns cause there is a LOT of them. On a few, I barely stayed on the track and on others I had slow down a good amount so my bike didn't skid out beneath me. This trail is overall amazing for beginners but only after they've learned basic skills and built up their confidence. For this, I would suggest a few hours at Breckenridge pump track/ bike park. This trail is also part of a massive downhill starting with bakers tank and ending at the ice rink and if you're in breck you need to check it out.Thank |
Bermed and beautiful!Thank |
