Maroon Bells covered in snow is truly spectacular! You can also see it from most ski area peaks. Totally a must see when in Aspen.

This truly one of natures masterpieces. It is beautiful in any season and under any lighting or weather conditions. Our favorite time to visit is in the early fall when the leaves are turning. The only bad thing about is the crowding. Definitely not the same as it was 30 years ago, but still worth the effort to see.

Great to visit year round (requires snowshoes/skis in winter). Shuttle bus works well in the summer and it is a quick and scenic drive to the Bells. Once there, it is easy to ditch the crowds with any number of trails. A must do if you have a day to spend.

Get there early. The reflection of the Bells in the lower lake as the sun rises is spectacular. Bring good hiking shoes and binoculars to see the animals. Loved the cool crisp air and watching the birds. No moose or bears on our hike.

After having spent 30+ years visiting Colorado 2x a year, I never had the pleasure of going during the Fall (Sept-Oct) and can't believe what I have been missing!!! We were staying with friends in Carbondale and made the drive to Maroon Bells. The drive there was full of color and provided a fantastic backdrop to the Bells. Maroon Bells... More
