About Owl Creek Trail

The Owl Creek Trail connects Snowmass Village to Aspen starting near the intersection of Brush Creek and Owl Creek Roads near the Anderson Ranch Art Center in Snowmass Village and traveling East, crossing the Owl Creek drainage on to the Buttermilk Ski Area. The trail is rated for beginners, but is moderately challenging because of substantial elevation gain. The Owl Creek Trail is very scenic passing through beautiful Aspen groves and meadows. Dogs must be on leash at all times on all Town trails, and please be courteous and clean up after your dog. Leash law enforced.



Parking at Snowmass Village Mall. Make sure you view posted parking restrictions.
