Description

Owl Creek Trail is a paved trail that follows Owl Creek Road through farms, forest, and rolling hills. While it's multi-use, you're likely to see a higher percentage of cyclists as this is a popular road ride for Aspenites. However, don't let the bike traffic deter you – this is an absolutely gorgeous trail.

If you have a hankering for singletrack, it also offers easy access to many area trails, including the fantastic Sky Mountain Park trails.
