The short 750-foot-long dirt trail provides a scenic and serene link between the pedestrian bridge that crosses the Roaring Fork River at the end of East Hopkins Avenue and the Rio Grande trailhead in Herron Park.

ASPEN REAL ESTATE – Even as a city crew was putting up a trail sign Thursday at the start of the new “No Problem Joe Trail,” Aspenites were happily using the just-opened shortcut along the river between the end of East Hopkins Avenue and No Problem bridge near Herron Park.The new trail is named for No Problem Joe, a laconic former resident of the neighborhood who used to reply to casual greetings with a drawn out “Noo problem.”And true to its namesake, the three-week construction project went smoothly.The new trail allows easy access to the river in at least two locations, and one waterfront spot includes a colorful hammock put up between two trees several years ago by locals in the area.A rugged fisherman’s trail used to run along the river prior to construction of the new trail, which appears to have been built by hand, shovel and wheelbarrow given the minor disturbance to the vegetation along the river bank.
