- This is a great place to picnic if you want mountain solitude without having to hike six hours to find it. All three picnic spots are within a five minute walk from the trailhead. For true ooh-look-at-this beauty, cross the bridge and follow the Old Stage Road to a picnic spot that borders the Roaring Fork River and includes a fishing dock. Larger groups should follow the left path, just before the bridge, for 200 yards where it spills out upon a huge picnic site. Directions: Drive nine miles east of Aspen on Highway 82. Continue driving past Weller Campground .9 miles to a sign marked "Trailhead" on the right. Turn here, drive about 200 feet to the parking area.
