Pitkin County Colorado Hiking Trails

New York Creek Trail #2182

White River National Forest

A difficult day hike through evergreen forests and mountain meadows to a high mountain pass, the 4.2 mile (one way) New York Creek Trail offers spectacular views of the mountainous terrain in the White River & Gunnison National Forest.

From the parking area, New York Creek Trail crosses Lincoln Creek which is very wide and can be tricky during high spring runoffs.

Following an old jeep road for a mile, the trail ascends gradually, then more steeply before merging with the old aqueduct road. Follow the old aqueduct road to the right for 05 mile. In a little over 0.25 mile, the trail crosses the Brooklyn Gulch Creek Division. Stay on the aqueduct road which makes an immediate S curve, then straightens. A few minutes farther the New York Creek Diversion can be seen. A few steeps before this diversion, the New York Trail enters the woods on the left where a sign is posted. If you reach the end of the road you have missed this turnoff by about 50 yards. Once in the woods, New York Trail parallels New York Creek for 0.75 mile. Marking the last mile of the trail before the pass are cairns & wooden post.

To reach New York Trail from Aspen Colorado, travel east along Highway 82 for 10 miles to Lincoln Creek Road and turn right. Continue along Lincoln Creek Road for 3.1 miles to New York Creek Trail turnoff on the right.
