Yummy hike, but if you are unused to the altitude you will huff and puff. It is worth the hike, regardless. Saw a ptarmigan, beautiful rock formations, great mountain wildflowers.

Absolutely beautiful!
Another must see if visiting the area. A great photo opportunity. Again, consider the weather as many of these areas and roads are closed and if you want to see it your only option is to hike in.

If you're in the Aspen area, I highly suggest a drive up Maroon Bells, there are many areas along the way to pull over to the side and take photos. Or, you can drive to the the end and park your car. There are clean restrooms and trails throughout. Very romantic or nice for family with dogs. We brought a cooler and found places along the way with picnic tables where we could hear the stream below.

We were recommended this short drive from Aspen by the local tourist booth and it was so worth it. Out of season you drive to a small carpark and then walk along to the lake itself, it was a beautiful sunny day & the scenery was stunning. There is another walk to a smaller lake but ensure you have the correct footwear and check out the distance before embarking on this walk, it's further than you might think and a rugged trail

What a beautiful and breathtaking place. It was our Austrian exchange students favorite place so far. So tranquil and pretty. Perfect day there.
