The price is a bit steep but it was one of the funnest things we did. The mountains are beautiful and the snowmobiles are fun to ride.

Even visiting during the week it was still busy on the Four Pass Loop. The scenery was lovley and breathtaking. It was a good introduction to the mountains. However, I don't know if I would go again. There was trash and food scraps on parts of the trail, as well as human feces on the edge of the trail in... More

Absolutely a must-see spot! We drove from Denver to Aspen for 2 nights just to see the Maroon Bells, and I am so glad we did. We woke up early in the morning to make our way up to the lake to watch the sunrise over the Bells. Even though it was pretty chilly, I wouldn't have changed a thing.... More

Maroon Bells in the summer is an epic sight. It is the most photographed peak in the United States. Take a hike to see it for sure in the summer. In the winter they close the area but you can rent snowmobiles. Will be trying that soon!

As you start out on your hike from the various parking lots, you pass by a large crystal clear pond that reflects the magnificent mountains, evergreen trees and aspen trees. The is a beaver home and you can see the effects... More

It's the most popular, the most beautiful place in Colorado. Breathtaking views and amazing hikes. The best time to visit it is fall, all the other seasons are magic too. A must see!
