Great Hike easy to get to
Jul 2017 • Friends
If you want a great hike that is only a couple of hours that makes you feel like you are alone in the middle of the wilderness that is very accessable this is one of the best. Start at Maroon Bells and hike down one way to the end to the end of the trail that let's you of at the road. From there the local Maroon Bells bus will pick you up (summer months) and bring you back to the the parking lot or the highlands.

Fantastic bridge with views

This bridge right off maroon creek as your heading up the bells is a short walk from the parking lot nearby...definitely worth a stop and walk across.

Great hike through golden mountains & pine forests
Sep 2016 • Family
A really nice hike in the Maroon Bells-Snowmass wilderness. The trail is a little over 3 miles once you pass the lake. It goes through golden aspen groves (late September), lichen-covered pine forests, bridges and a beautiful creek. For my 17 year old outdoors daughter, it was an easy trail. I had just had ankle surgery with a metal implant and was about 6 weeks short of hiking comfortably. I had to calculate every footfall and carefully monitor positioning on the surgical ankle. Even though a lot of the trail is rocky, it was still a very do-able hike. Not many people on it and my Facebook friends commented on how stunning the photos were. Research the parking issue and times before you go.

Pretty but horses share this trail
Sep 2016 • Couples
The trail was very rocky but offered a peaceful walk. We only passes two other hikers on a busy Thursday. There was a large amount of horse poop on the trail which really detracted from the trail as we continually had to watch our footing or end up stepping in a mess. I wouldn't do this trail again. It was 3.2 miles and we took about 2 hrs to hike. We stopped along the way for a snack in an open meadow. It was very quiet.

Gorgeous, Easy, Family Hike
Aug 2016 • Family
The six of us enjoyed the wonderful views at the lake and then started down the trail. My boys were 10, 7, 4 and 18 months. The baby was in a baby backpack.

* easy with great views
* too many rocks for a stroller
* a little muddy when it's rained
* several pretty bridges over the creek
* mostly downhill, but a couple nice climbs of about 100 yards
* plan for about 1.5-2 miles per hour, so I wouldn't start after 3 since the last bus is at 5
* raspberries were ripe and we enjoyed

Overall an absolute wonderful hike. It's easy, and I live at sea level so this isn't coming from a local tuff mudder athlete. Highly suggest.

Spectacular Moderate Trail
Jun 2016 • Friends
A couple of spots perhaps maybe a bit rough, but mostly a moderate trail that offers a less crowded view of Maroon Valley. Good views of Maroon Bells and Pyramid Peak. This is almost 7 miles, but you can stop at several points and a bus will pick you up at designated locations. It traverses bubbling creeks, white water, aspen groves, magnificent array of wildflowers, fir trees looming overhead...wildlife...saw a couple of deer rather up close doing their thing...just beautiful. If not accustomed to the elevation, can get a bit winded at several inclines, but slowing the pace fixes that. Also a horseback trail, so watch where you walk!
