“Breath-taking views !!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

This specatcular site, a short 8 -mile drive from downtown Aspen, did not dissapoint. The views are Postcard-worthy, with two huge snow-caped mountains centered between two pine-covered valleys slopping down to a spectacular lake, where the mountains reflect in all their splendor. The drive itself is gorgeous, up the Aspen Highlands, with may aspen trees turning gold among snow-covered ground, and fabulous Mountain homes,for a perfect Fall day. Well worth seeing !!!!

The top of the Rockies, a must to everyone that visits Aspen...in winter wrap up warmly, it's usually windy up there...

“My favorite place in Colorado”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

I live in Colorado and have had a chance to travel across the state. Hands down, my favorite place is the Maroon Bells. It's worth the short hike up to Crater Lake where it's a bit less crowded and you still have breathtaking views. Enjoy!

“Beautiful and Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

The Maroon Bells are a destination like no other. Hike the Crater Lake trail and spend 2 hours round trip in one of the most gorgeous, breathtaking places in our country. Bring a camera!

“wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

sunrise by the lake in late September... WOW! Colors were outstanding. Great photo op, but be prepared to share the lake side with many others.
