5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

A chance to see the Bells, using the pamphlet provided, and get some great pictures to take home with you for great memories.

“Breath Taking View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

Definite MUST SEE! Absolutely beautiful and not far from Aspen! 5 minute walk from the parking lot to the trail (and awesome view of the Maroon Bells).

“Rocky Mountain Postcard”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

One of the all time classic postcard images, this simple trail is readily accessible and opens up one magnificent vista after the other. As a world traveler who has enjoyed mountain scenery from the Andes to the Alps, I still visit this trail annually and it still takes my breath away

“Easy hike. Good views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

This is a great hike that gets you just a little further from the parking lot. Easy for families. Just make sure you have the right shoes. A spill on this trail could land you in a nice cold creek of a like of snow.

“Maroon Lake Scenic Trail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

This is well worth doing and as beautiful as everyone says. There were a few people around the car park end of the lake but very few ventured to the far end of the lake. The path was a little muddy after the rain, but nothing that a shoes with good tread could not manage. If you are only going to do one walk this is the one to do. The scenery was breath taking and the fall colours exquisite. There is usually a fee to get into the park but the US government was shut down so there was no fee, we parked very close to the lake and there were only about 20 people.
