I got married here last August and couldn't have asked for a better venue. We did not need to add any decorations because it does not need it! The natural beauty of the lake, the bells, the mountains makes for a perfect venue! I need to come back and hike around here :)

Absolutely Breathtaking! I think a visit during the fall is best as the colors are amazing. I live up there so I get to see them every day!

Enjoy the magnificent views and mountain reflections off of the beautiful lake. Go in the morning and get the perfect reflection of the mountains. Perfect spot for that family photo!

A must see for all levels of hikers. Stay low for a leisurely stroll on fairly level ground. Or, you can head up the mountain for a series of more strenuous trails. Views abound and naturalists were in the area to provide information on the flora and fauna. A beauty indeed.

We ride Harleys and riding them up to Maroon Bells is spectacular! It's as good as Glacier National Park and Independence Pass. Then then is another alternative that is almost as good and that is at the circle (round about) where you head to Maroon Bells, just next to it is the road to Ashcroft. No tourist only locals know...

Perhaps my expectations were inflated by the numerous glowing reviews here and elsewhere. I enjoyed the hike, the facilities were, by and large, good, and the views pleasing. But, I would not agree that Maroon Bells is "can't miss," or "breathtaking." If you have the time and wish to spend a few hours hiking in pleasant surroundings, by all means,... More

A must see. Either hike on a low trail around the lake or go up the path to the upper lake. Any level of hiker should go, even those who can only walk a little.

One of the most beautiful places on earth. Unfortunately, a lot of people feel that way, so taking a bus there during the summer is the only way to get there. You have to share your experience with an awful lot of other people. if you can be around the lake during twilight, it is a truly magical experience.

One of America's most beautiful locations to enjoy mother nature either with friends or alone. In good weather, when open, hiking is fantastic.
