There is so much to love in this 45 mile stretch of heaven from Glenwood Springs to Aspen and beyond to the top of Independence Pass. Each season is special from The deep fall colors of Aspen, Cottonwoods, Maples and oak brush. Then winter wonderland takes over the mountain peaks and valley floor. Cross country skiing, best downhill skiing in... More

From Glenwood Springs to Aspen, Maroon Bells, and over Independence Pass. Lots of Aspen viewing. Late September into the first two weeks of October is the best time to go.

Quaint little tourist type town along the Crystal River. Sit by the river and eat lunch. Pack our own lunch. Very peaceful.

Whether sports person or sightseer there is plenty to see and do in the Roaring Fork Valley. The highlight is the spectacular view of Mt. Sopris in any season.

The scenery here is lovely, with Mount Sopris overlooking the peaceful valley. The highway is a divided four-lane.

We had a great time walking on the trail along the Roaring Fork River. We have kids 7 and 11 and they enjoyed as well. The trail is 38 miles long and goes all the way to Aspen.

We liked it so much we spent some of our vacation time looking at real estate. People are friendly and you can tell the Chambers, etc. work hard to keep the area a garden spot. Great place to base a week trip as you can drive to Aspen, Vail, etc.

This valley is what people dream of when they think Colorado. Beautiful mountains, trees, wild flowers, animals, and more. There is always something to do, not matter what time of year you visit.
