A natural beauty!

All kinds of choices for exercising outdoors. Say, medium, hard! Breathtaking surroundings! Cheap outing and something to do alone or with the family!

My husband really wanted to come here. I kind of thought -- we're already in Aspen. How much better can the mountains be? The answer was "gloriously and unimaginably better." One of the loveliest places on earth. We hiked for several hours, and I would love to come back and spend even more time at this heavenly place. Wow. Just... More

Must do in Aspen! We drove from Breck for the day to visit Maroon Bells. Couldn't beat the price (just a few dollars/person). Take the shuttle up the mountain to the drop off point and listen to the narration of the area by the driver. I wish I could remember our driver's name, but he was fabulous. Dress appropriately! It... More

It was nice, but a mountain's a mountain, to me. I took some nice panoramic photos with my family. The ride up included seeing many Aspen trees (which are quite lovely when the leaves are golden).

We decided to go here to view the Aspens changing colors in fall of 2015. Probably one of the busiest times of the year to visit Maroon Bells. Fortunately it's a hug phye park/area with plenty of trails and amenities which are understated and practical so they don't detract from the experience. Parking is a bit of a hassle, but... More

One of the most beautiful and photographed vistas in the West. Make sure to have your camera ready when you get off the Loge Peak Lift at the top of Aspen Highlands.

No other words explain this place. You truly think your dreaming from the beauty. Watch the weather reports however as even on sunny days when you change altitude there can be a lot of cloud coverage which will block the mountain. Truly a peaceful and quiet place.

We love it in the fall when the aspens are glowing and the creek is running well. We recommend the hike on the south side of the creek. It is not hard but sometimes poles help. You meander on a trail through trees following the creek. Eventually cross over tumbled small boulders and come into the open...sunscreen definitely advised. Can... More

Probably the most photographed place in Colorado. Beautiful, peaceful and well worth the visit. If you are visiting Aspen a trip to the Maroon Bells is a "gotta do".
