hip-hop and you don't stop the rockin'
A short trail that splits the Aspen loop.
From the east side, the hike generally starts heading west at the signed intersection with the Aspen Loop Trail #411. After a short distance, the trail is signed as it leaves the old forest road and proceeds along a small knoll that sits between two meadows. This is the most scenic part of the trail.
About halfway through the trail, you climb a small hill and run into a vague section where the trail isn't clear due to recent logging activity. However, 50 yards later, the trail becomes clear. It proceeds slightly downhill and tracks a small drainage to the west, eventually reaching a T junction with the western side of the Aspen Trail.
The trail is not particularly well maintained as there is some overgrowth along most of the way, primarily small pine trees and grass, likely due to the low amount of trail usage. There are a few carsonite markers along the way, with a large "A" at the top. According to the Aspen Loop, this would make the trail part of the Aspen Loop Trail #411 itself, which obviously it is not.
I do not know why it is called the boulder hop trail...there are no boulders of note and no rock hopping required.
