    Park at Aspen corner (Snow Bowl Rd up to where you see a split rail fence on the left and parking). Take trail down till it hits the AZT and go right...can't miss it.

    The forecasted heavy rains and snow levels down to 6500 ft will most likely spank the Aspen leaves pretty good over the next 3 days. Hopefully it won't end the leaf changing season prematurely, not even close to peak conditions.

    Another option is to park up at the northern part of the AZ trail on FR 418 and ride south to Aspen Corner and then turn around. This way you end the ride on a three mile rippen downhill through the aspens!

    Even another option would be to park at Snowbowl Lodge at the bottom of the road by hwy 180, do the 1 mile gradual climb on the road to the AZT, and then out and back to hwy418. Then you get to finish with an even better downhill. You could also do a lollipop by dropping down to the Bismark Lake TH and taking Hart Prairie Rd to 418 and return on the AZT.
