Really wanted to see some fall color this weekend, and this hike looked like a winner. Wasn't sure if we should go this weekend or wait til next, but I was impatient. My first time here. This is probably one of the most beautiful trails I've ever been on. The parking lot was overflowing and we had to park a bit down the road in one of the small pullouts, but the trail didn't feel crowded. After taking the trail down from the 2nd junction we only saw a handful of people. The weather was very nice... sunny and pleasant.

I don't know if this was the peak time to go, but it was definitely close. Most of the older stands of aspens were still green, but all the younger trees had at least some gold to them. Some stands were definitely at their peak. The golden aspen tunnels after heading back down were quite amazing. I could have stayed there all day. My phone's camera just can't quite capture the colors. You're probably gonna be sick of looking at aspens by the end of my photoset...
