The Aspen Spur Hiking Trail
About The Trail
The Aspen Spur Hiking Trail, located west of Lake Aspen and east of Harmony Bridge, looks upon the Aspen Spillway and meadow. The path is fairly straight spanning from Aspen Dam to Harmony Bridge. There is no turnaround on this section of the trail, but the views are wonderful. You can see the waterfalls caused by the spillover of the lake and the grassy land below. Look for wildlife in the spillway, as it is one of the favorite hideouts for heron and other birds. In addition to birds and wildlife, many types of wildflowers and plants grow in this section.
Hike time on this trail is approximately 15 minutes. You can extend your hike by walking along the main road across Harmony Bridge and connecting to The Meadows Hiking Trail.
How to Get There
From the IBK Corporate Administration and Construction Offices, travel south on Aspen Way Drive, then south on West Aspen Circle Drive. The parking area is just across the bridge before the dam. The trailhead is on the north side of the bridge. In addition to this trail map, we suggest you bring along a color Innsbrook development map (available at the Front Gate, Real Estate or Aspen Center Front Desk).
While You’re Hiking
For your safety, please watch for loose rocks, tree roots, and other obstacles along the trails. Please park in designated parking areas only. Stay on the marked trail; do not take shortcuts. The trail has been laid out to minimize the destruction of surrounding vegetation and to prevent erosion. Carry out what you carry in. If the trail users before you have not done this, you can help by removing their trash, too. We ask you to leave only footprints and take only pictures. Nature is for everyone to enjoy, so let your followers experience the beauty.
