American Lake

Stephi and I were going to hike Cathedral Lake but changed our minds and went up to American Lake instead. With bug spray!!!! And we even lent our bug spray to other hikers who were in the position I was in last Saturday. American lake trailhead is about 11 miles out of Aspen on the Castle Creek Road. It is a super easy trailhead to get to – right off the paved road. We did the round trip in 3.5 hours with lunch at the lake.

About Bronwyn

Hi. I moved to the Aspen area from Australia in 1997 and have a daughter born right here in Aspen in 2000. I teach skiing (for the past eighteen seasons) and am a Real Estate Advisor with Engel & Völkers Roaring Fork.. I love to ski, snowboard, horse-ride, raft, and hike with our dog Sheila. This valley offers so much and one day I may also take up golf or fishing!
