Details

Start from U.S. 285 on the S. side of the highway. This trail ascends through wildflower meadows and groves of aspens. With luck, the group might catch the aspen changing colors at their peak. BRING CAMERAS!!



Notes

There's definitely some new snow up in the area of the Ben Tyler Trail, so I suggest carrying with you either "yak tracks or micro-spikes" for added traction when hiking on the trail. Even though it will also be cold tomorrow, I expect there to be some glances of the aspens changing colors, so also carrying a camera might be a wise choice as well!
