Aspen has an extensive trail system with countless jogging routes near The Little Nell. In the summer, runners can explore the East Aspen Trail, a paved-and-gravel path that begins blocks from the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel on the corner of Original and Cooper streets. The trail, which is 7 miles roundtrip, was recently expanded with an extension that goes from downtown and meanders up Independence Pass over creeks and streams. Another stand out is the 40-mile Rio Grande Trail, which runs along the Roaring Fork River and is a favorite of local long-distance runners.
