If you have a day to hike, and then another day to recover, jot this remote trail down on your 'Things to do while in Aspen list.' This mountain path covers 8.8 miles (14.2 kilometers) and zigzags near Independence Pass before descending down a jeep trail back to Aspen. The thin air can be a factor because the hike starts at 10,504 feet (3202 meters) and peaks at over 12,000 (3658 meters). You will need someone to shuttle you to the trailhead because it is a one-way journey. Follow Route 82 east for 14 miles (22.5 kilometers); the trailhead is directly across the road from Lost Man Campground.
