Description

If you start by heading west along the Lodge Pole Loop, you'll be able to find either trailhead for the Sunny Aspen Trail. Many decide to take this trail counter-clockwise, but it's equally pleasant in either direction. Follow this aptly-named trail to wind through groves of aspens with minimal shading. As you follow along the trail, keep an eye out for the Old Ski Run Trail trailhead, this will take you up further into Meyer Ranch Park.

If you don't want to add on the the Old Ski Run Trail, simply follow the Sunny Aspen Trail to where it intersects with the Lodge Pole Loop again, and complete the loop to return to the trailhead and your vehicle.
