High-Altitude Aspens and Views
The fantastic Aspen Vista Trail is higher up in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains along a rocky, dirt road. The trailhead commences at 9,900 feet and tops out at 12,000 feet (at the summit of the Santa Fe ski basin) and provides more exertion and challenge. You will be rewarded with stellar views. Obviously, at the peak of autumn, you'll want to keep your camera handy.
