I'm visiting Colorado in July and I would like to visit Maroon Bells without a car. I'll be arriving in Glenwood Springs on the Greyhound, then I plan to stay a night before going to Aspen. All I found is that RFTA goes to Aspen but I don't know how exactly to get to Maroon Bells after that.
Also, how difficult is the Maroon Lake Scenic Trail? How does it compare to the Mist Trail in Yosemite? I have a fear of heights, so I don't like to walk around on high ridges.
I'm planning to start from Glenwood around 7:00 AM and would like to return to Glenwood Springs by 2:20 PM, if at all possible. Unfortunately, RFTA has a complicated website that I cannot understand.
Thank you for your replies.
