The top of the Rockies, a must to everyone that visits Aspen...in winter wrap up warmly, it's usually windy up there...

“My favorite place in Colorado”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

I live in Colorado and have had a chance to travel across the state. Hands down, my favorite place is the Maroon Bells. It's worth the short hike up to Crater Lake where it's a bit less crowded and you still have breathtaking views. Enjoy!

“Beautiful and Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

The Maroon Bells are a destination like no other. Hike the Crater Lake trail and spend 2 hours round trip in one of the most gorgeous, breathtaking places in our country. Bring a camera!

“wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

sunrise by the lake in late September... WOW! Colors were outstanding. Great photo op, but be prepared to share the lake side with many others.

“Absolutely jaw dropping!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

We visited Maroon Bells at the end of September and hit the jackpot in terms of autumnal colours. The weather was perfect- chilly early in the morning, but the sun warmed us later. The sky was brilliant blue and a wonderful backdrop for the simply stunning Maroon Bells. Our jaws just dropped at the beauty of this place. We had such an array of colour: gold, yellow and red, mixed in with some green, the snowcapped Bells themselves and the blue sky. All this incredible beauty was reflected in the lake. I felt like I was on a movie set, it was so unreal!
My tip would be to get there early, that way you can drive your own car into the park. After 9am, the gates are shut to incoming private vehicles and you have to take a bus from Aspen. It also gets pretty busy with everyone trying to get that perfect shot of the Bells, so it's better to be there earlier rather than later.
