The Maroon Bells is spectacularly beautiful when the aspens are in full color. Beautiful walk or long hikes up from the lake. We had to take the bus, which was easy and well-organized.

Had a great hike at the end of November from the parking lot at T Lazy 7. The road closed around 11/20 so this was our best option to see the Bells. The ranch sent out a few snow cats that passed us on the road with about 15-20 tourists so that could be an additional option. The hike was... More

I understand this place to be one of the most photographed places in Colorado, and it does have some nice views. I'm not so sure that, for us, it was worth the long hike up to Crater Lake though. But we did enjoy the mountain views.

We had viewed photos of Maroon Bells but they didn't really prepare us for the stunning beauty. Thank goodness they are preserving this gorgeous spot and keeping it from being overrun with visitors by limiting car traffic. We took the bus from Aspen Highlands and a personable driver dropped us off at the beginning of our hike. We opted for... More

Went on the long hike. Nice views and not too difficult a trail. Went in the winter so lakes were frozen

Maroon Bells, don't miss these majestic mountains. A must see when in Aspen. A twenty minute ride from Aspen and a four hour drive from Denver. A picture doesn't do these justice. Driving out to view Maroon Bells, I came around the last corner..... Wow, I practically stop the car right there on the road. Parking lot a few hundred... More

What a view!! We went on the one rainy cold day during our summer stay. But it was still spectacular!! Loved the hike up to the Bells! It got a little slippery. If it's going to rain be sure to take rain jackets and proper shoes for hiking!

I came here on a cold day so I didn't do much hiking. There are some really great spots to take photos right after parking. The scenery is breath taking.
