Owl Creek Trail
This popular and scenic trail connects Aspen and Snowmass Village, hugging the south side of the Roaring Fork and Owl Creek valleys. Most skiers use this trail as a casual tour with a lunch break and light touring gear. The easiest and most popular stretch of trail runs from the West Buttermilk Road to the Snowmass Cross- Country Center. Another popular option from West Buttermilk Road is to ski to Sinclair Divide and back. The Tiehack Nordic Bridge allows skiers easy access to the Owl Creek Trail from the Aspen Cross-Country Center. Follow the green disks to stay on course when crossing the Buttermilk Ski Area. Be aware and yield to downhill skiers. The trail depicted on the map is approximate and only intended to give you a general idea of it's seasonal location.
