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.

The hike was a hike... not crazy but be ready to do some uphill for a bit.. When you arrive at Crater Lake you will be happy and glad you made the effort. Stop and take in the views as you head up and down as you get many different scenes that you can miss if you don't take it... More

The most beautiful place in Colorado - not like any fourteener on the planet. On a calm day the mountain reflection in the lake is unlike any you will ever see. Even an amateur photographer can get a great picture.

Easy trail, amazing fall colors! A place to stop and take in nature's beauty. Take your camera! We went back twice in 3 days.

Everyone is driving slowly along this winding, beautiful 2-lane road. A photo will not do it justice.
