Fantastic descent from the Four corners intersection dropping down to Henry Stein park area in Aspen. Trail begins with a meander through stands of aspen trees before transitioning to a somewhat steep sidehill trail and finally continuing the descent to exposed, rocky, real deal riding. Sunnyside is probably one of Aspen's more technical descending trails. As you drop down to the rocky finish, beware of hikers coming up the trail as they tend to be quite plentiful on the lower stretch.
