If you’re looking for an easy hike in the mountains near Aspen, then this is a good bet for you. It starts out in aspen forest and montane shrubland (look for Orange-crowned Warbler, Western Tanager, Red-naped Sapsucker) as well as willows (look for Fox and Lincoln’s Sparrows) before heading into nice spruce-fir woodland. Here watch for finches, including Red Crossbill, and Williamson’s Sapsucker. If you take the trail up high enough you may find higher-elevation species like American Three-toed Woodpecker and Gray Jay.
