    A beautiful, unspoilt area just on the edge of Aspen. Easy parking and a pleasant walk to the lake. Loved the scenery and the mountain backdrop was special.

    Independence Pass is a beautiful place to visit. Nice, well maintained trails to walk, if you can handle the altitude.
    We usually go though this pass at least once when visiting Aspen

    Wander through the stones inscribed with several of John Denvers most famous songs. Sit on a rock and enjoy the beauty of this sanctuary

    Great experience. You need to reserve a free online shuttle and park at the Aspen Highland Parking Deck $6/hour--$40 max day. We hiked to the Crater Lake (ROCKY) (preferred/less crowded) and the smaller Maroon Bells Lake-CROWDED. Very accommodating. Very organized to hand the larger crowds.

    A wonderful ride up Aspen Mountain to a playground that’s great for all ages.

    You can play Jenga, Bags, Chess, Checkers, climbing for the kids as well as a sand pit with toys.

    There is morning yoga every day at 10:30 and a yummy restaurant at the top as well.

    The views are also spectacular! And you can see 5 14-ers from the restaurant deck.

    The ride down is just as fun as the town of Aspen is at your feet.

    $33 per person for a 2 way ride.

    We had a wonderful and joyous wedding at T Lazy 7. Julie and the events whole team were so easy to work with. They are true pros. There was no question in our mind that we wanted to get married outdoors in the TL7 meadow. We paired the beautiful meadow ceremony with a reception hosted in the Lodge. Our guests especially loved the cocktail hour which was hosted on the Lodge Lawn. Fire pits, cornhole and beautiful scenery. Many of our guests were from NYC, and they were blown away by the setting and authentic nature of the lodge. The TL7 team accommodated all of our design requests - we turned the lodge into a Boho Disco themed dance floor complete with disco balls, a champagne tower and glow sticks. I only wish I could do it all over again.

    Started in Aspen, after visiting the John Denver Sanctuary, wonderful and peaceful.
    The trail is very well marked, big hill just before Basalt, then some wide open views.
    Bikers, walkers, runners on the trail.
    Felt safe the whole way.

    We enjoyed are day here, but it was not our favorite of the 4 mountains. We enjoyed skiing off the gondola, but after a few runs it felt like we had done everything we could do. The lodge at the gondola was very pretty with beautiful views and great service. Our main complaints was the skiing to the base at the end of the day, even on a weekday it was extremely busy and icy, not a fun way to end my day.

    Out of the four mountains this is the best one to go with small children or anyone that is starting to learn how to ski.

    About 2 hours round trip and heavy rocky paths. Not too kid friendly with all the rocks and boulders, but a great view at the top.

    If you like advanced skiing or snowboarding this is the place for you. Although it does have easy runs. The thing I love most about this mountain is that there are a ton of wood trails. Definitely recommend it

    The first time we went, my wife and I crossed the bridge and did a longer trail. It is a rather strenuous walk so be prepared!
    The last two times, we took the trail to the left of the bridge which is a short, easy walk to the bas of the grottos's. You can actually get better pictures from this path than the longer one which brings up out on top of the Grottos.

    This was an enjoyable walk through some old buildings - the inside of the saloon is also a museum (and could have used more light as in open windows so you could see the exhibits).

    There is a $5 per person charge for admission and no dogs are allowed.

    The River Run Trail also goes through the property and is beautiful and very peaceful.

    This is a great place to spend an afternoon.

    Rented E-Bikes and road up Castle Creek Road to eat at Pine Creek Cookhouse! Breathtaking views along the way! Just beautiful. Saw many riders both on regular bikes and e-bikes..

    Very pretty with lots of shade. Not too much elevation. Nice views of the creek. Starts in town so no need to drive anywhere and park.
