Lonely Planet review

Accessed via Buttermilk Rd in Aspen, this 12-mile single-track trail runs all the way to Snowmass. The round trip can take 3 to 4.5 hours, but as long as you're in Snowmass, why not ride the gondola up and bomb down the mountain before coasting back to Aspen town. You'll have earned it.
