Details

This historical tour of the city of Aspen begins at Aspen Grove Cemetery, a 22 acre preserve in east Aspen. We'll pass by the graves of the Browns, Cowenhovens and Paepckes, and enjoy a stunning view of Aspen from the walk-on water tower. We'll then cross Hwy 82 to the East of Aspen Trail, following the trail to the Ute Cemetery to see the Civil War veterans’ graves. We'll then proceed down Ute Avenue past the start of the Ute Trail to Ralph Jackson’s memorial; then we'll reverse one block to enter the base of Nell Traverse on Ajax with views of Aspen; then we'll cross over to come out on the trail going down into the Koch Lumber Co. Park. We’ll lunch there and discuss other options, depending on weather, such as crossing Castle Creek on the bike bridge.
