The hike itself was not strenuous, it was full of spectacular views. I kind of just explored the area, I walked around the lake and hiked the trail. I would definitely recommend a camera, and be extra observant. There was a pair of mountain goats I saw right next to me, they posed for pictures before I set forth on... More

This is a lovely hike in a beautiful area. We did it with three generations. Be sure to take your camera, water and a picnic lunch. We had a delightful lunch at the edge of crater lake with gorgeous panoramic views. Great hike for the whole family.

I can't really say...I hike all over the world, this is just a beautiful area of the state and easily accessible. I hike in Glacier National Park, so that's one of my favorite places, but this place is easy to get to if you're in Aspen.

Short hike for the easy going. Take water and snacks and wear appropriate clothing and layer. Weather in the Rockies can change in an instant. Beautiful scenery, wildlife and wildflowers can be seen on the hike. Take your camera for that one in a million shot.

This is a scenic walk in a beautiful area. It is at altitude, so be careful. There is parking before the trail.

This is a fun, leisurely hike good for all ages, though only stroller and wheelchair accessible in the beginning. The views are stunning and there is wildlife. On our second day at the Bells, there were moose camped out just beside the trail and they had to close it for a time. Fortunately we had done it the day before... More

Couldn't stop saying, "Wow" and "Oh my gosh". This is one of my all time favorite hikes. We went in late September and the fall foliage was spectacular. Wear shoes with good ankle support. The trail is rocky.

The views here are amazing. The trails are well-marked and easy. Views are stunning. Be sure to bring some snacks and make a picnic of the experience. Definitely photogenic.

Great place to hike around lake or up to Carter Lake. Can also hike up East or West Maroon Trails. Beautiul place to hike or take picnic lunch and hike around.
