Hike: Aspen Mountain

Ride the Silver Queen Gondola to the top of Aspen Mountain and walk along Richmond Ridge with an ACES naturalist. Incredible views make this hike unique and a must-do for any Aspen visitor. Wildflowers, wildlife and mining history are just a few of the topics that can be shared as the walk winds through the forest and up to the final 360 degree viewpoint.
