Aspen / Pitkin camping or hiking recommendations
I have some out of state friends visiting this weekend who need to be in the Aspen area at the end of the weekend so I am looking to explore a little bit in the area. Not interested in established campgrounds, instead looking for dispersed camping on public land that could be accessed by 4x4 trails or maybe a cool spot to backpack into that offers some cool exploration. I know there are the conundrum hot springs, but I feel like that is best for multiple nights (am I wrong?).
I know this isnt whitewater related, but I know some of you buzzards live in that area and can provide some insight that isnt readily available on the web. Any tips or suggestions are appreciated.
