American Lake – Aspen, Colorado

Aspen, Colorado


Periodic climbs with moderate grades through Aspen groves, forests of pine trees and wildflower meadows make this beautiful hike a good workout and great for acclimating to the areas more challenging trails. Waterfalls echo as the trail leads to the high mountain, emerald green lake filled with trout awaiting your arrival.
