Summer: Hiking, Biking, and Fishing Adventures
Flowers, Wildlife and Mountain Scenery are so Abundant
Ashcroft and the upper Castle Creek Valley are a veritable mecca of recreation opportunities. Hikers can stroll the historic Ghost Town of Ashcroft, continue up beautiful River Run trail, or take on the invigorating climbs up American and Cathedral trails to hidden, pristine lakes. Cycling up Castle Creek Road from Aspen is one of the locals’ favorite road rides, while the forest roads over the surrounding passes offer unlimited mountain biking. The riffles and beaver ponds of upper Castle Creek offer Gold Medal trout fishing. Photographers often dot the roads around Ashcroft busy capturing the flowers, wildlife and mountain scenery so abundant in the area.
Whatever your summer passion, don’t forget to include lunch or dinner at the Pine Creek Cookhouse when visiting Ashcroft and the Upper Castle Creek Valley.
