Puppy Smith St and Mill Street, Aspen, CO 81611Map
Neighborhood: Downtown

If you are in search of a leisurely walk that does not require hiking boots, wander down this scenic paved path. It follows the twisting Roaring Fork River and is remarkably full of dense forest. Besides the occasional backyards of several homes, the path offers little indication of Aspen's presence. Benches provide perfect perches to absorb the river/forest serenity. The 16-mile (26-kilometer) path leads all the way to Woody Creek. Most tourists, however, favor it for an easy summer stroll when staying in town. The trailhead is right behind the Aspen Post Office.
