Hiking in April

Ill be in Aspen from the 4th - 11th and was wondering if it is possible to do any hiking at that time?

If yes, what trails are recommended?

That sure sounds early. I am not an Aspen hiking expert but I would imagine that if you were willing to drive and lower yourself in elevation towards Carbondale and Glenwood Springs, there will be some great hiking on south and west facing hills that are not covered in too many trees.

I would check with the visitor centers in Glenwood and Carbondale. Of course, it depends on the weather... April brings with it a mix of incredibly warm days and some very snowy days too.

You can hike around here then, and shorter trails such as Sunnyside and Smuggler will be fairly dry, though it certainly can snow and that will change the game. You could also do Hunter Creek, but it might be wet/snowy in spots. You can always uphill on the ski mountains - Aspen, Snowmass, and Buttermilk will all be closed (Buttermilk already by then, AM and SM by end of the day on the 10th.) if you use stabilizers.
