If you are in the Aspen area, don't miss the opportunity to hike near the Maroon Bells. The views are amazing, and the air is fresh and clean. The road is closed to auto traffic after 9 a.m., but there are busses that will take you up and bring you back down when you are ready. Allow a minimum of... More

My friend, Dan challenged me to take the hike between Aspen and Crested Butte. Being a flat lander, I wondered how difficult the trip would be and if I would have the necessary equipment to enjoy the hike. We hit the trail after acclamating for three days to the mountain elevation. We started at Maroon lake and walked the trail... More

Great workout - 8 miles up hill with 1600 vertical foot gain. Scenery is outstanding and the ride down is a nice reward.

A Maroon Bells Guided Bus Tour is included with 3 days of lift privileges and a $10 credit toward food in the Perfect Summer Package. It's an excellent value and the Maroon Bells are top-notch! But you must be in-the-know to avoid frustrations. We arrived EARLY at the bus terminal (Ruby Park) to catch an RFTA bus to Highlands. But... More

this place is beautiful. anyone can do this hike. You have to take a bus to get there but its worth it. the short hike up to the little bridge is worth it and very easy. great mountain alpine scenery. snow year round on the peaks. glassy mountain lake. bring your camera. you will need it.

This is truly one of the most beautiful places we have visited. The bells reflecting in the lake were so, so pretty. We were fortunate enough to see a moose mom and calf on our way to the lake, as well as two more moose at the lake. We hiked the trail along the stream, which was quite a bit... More

One of the most beautiful places in the Rockies. Very close to Snowmass/Aspen. It can get crowded with wedding parties, so I would avoid a weekend hike.

Initially we debated this because it was expensive for 15 of us to ride the shuttle (required). But after going, it was well worth the costs. The shuttle provides a great narration on the way up, with lots of information. Also, the shuttle makes this a good experience for everyone because it takes the cars off the road! We were... More
