Aspen Alley runs from the Peak to Peak parking area all the way to the end of West Magnolia Road (Haul Road). The trail has a little bit of everything from narrow hand raked singletrack to bumps, berms, doubles and drops. When starting from the P2P parking area you'll begin with a singletrack climb through loamy spindly trees. Stay right at the first intersection (left is ReRoot Trail) and continue climbing through the recent clear cut area. You will come to another intersection (Whoop di-dos) again stay right. You will have some incredible views to your right to the town of Nederland and Barker Reservoir. Continue riding to the next intersection (Super Vu) and stay left. Here you will begin the fun descent through berms, rollers and drops. This section of trail was formerly a road used to haul the cut trees. The work here was done to mitigate erosion from the fall line alignment and remove water from the trail wherever possible while also creating a fun section of trail to encourage progression in riders. Keep an eye open for a trail on your right at the bottom of this section. The right turn will take you to Super Vu and allow you to climb back to the top if you wish to session the berms and rollers. Continue straight on the trail to stay on Aspen Alley to access Sugar Magnolia Trail and Lookout Trail.
