On Saturday DaNece and I took a little stroll out to a new trail. Located right across the street from the Aspen Creek Trail, trail 393 curls away from Copper Basin rd. towards town. The many switchbacks give you an easier hike, and time to enjoy the beautiful little valleys that you walk through. If I figure correctly (which rarely happens) then this trail meets up with the Sierra Prietta Outlook trail.
We spent about 3 hours on the trail at a leisurely pace covering about 4 miles. The weather was almost perfect (a bit on the cold side in the shade). There was still snow on the ground, but not enough to cause any real difficulty unless you go off-trail.
We followed it through until it met up with a forest service road, then turned back around and headed for the truck. Would also be a good trail for mountain bikes (as was evidenced by multiple bike tracks along the way).
