Pitkin County Colorado Hiking Trails

Spruce Creek Trail #1927

White River National Forest

Traveling through wooded areas, the 8 mile (one-way to Twin Meadows) Spruce Creek Trail is not heavily used, available for hiking & horseback riding, and offers plenty places to camp.

Follow Woody Creek Trail for 1.75 miles to the fork with Spruce Creek Trail, just past the Spruce Creek crossing. Spruce Creek Trail travels along the left fork and again crosses the creek in about 0.25 mile. Remaining along the west side of the creek until reaching Sawmill Park, Spruce Creek Trail disappears in the meadow of Sawmill Park.

Two options are available at this time. Halfway through the park on the left is an old road which leads from the edge of the meadow through a spruce/fir forest and reaches the top of Mt. Yeckel in about a mile. The other option is to pick up the trail on the upper end of Sawmill Park and continue down Foster Gulch another 2 miles to Twin Meadows.

To reach Spruce Creek Trail from Aspen Colorado, travel west along Highway 82 for 7 miles to the Woody Creek turnoff (about 1 mile past the Brush Creek Road turnoff to Snowmass Village). Turn right following the road downhill. After crossing the bridge bear left and continue 2 miles to the town of Woody Creek. Just past the town take a sharp right onto Woody Creek Road #18 or FR #103. Continue along this road 8.5 miles to the town of Lenado. About 0.75 mile past Lenado the road makes a sharp left turn and crosses Woody Creek. Woody Creek Trailhead is located along the right side of the road, just before the bridge.
