Maroon Bells is a breathtakingly beautiful part of the United States--a glacial valley with a view of purple mountian peaks and the shimmering Maroon Lake below. The only problem is that, especially in the summer, the trails surrounding the lake can get overrun with people--arrive early to beat the crowds!

Spectacular! I did a 16 mile bike from town to come here - definitely the best way to do it. The bells are truly breathtaking!

Maroon Bells Near Aspen - A BEAUTIFUL place to hike and take pictures! -- Take I-70 west to Glenwood Springs to Highway 82 east. Follow 82 to the Aspen Roundabout where you will pick up the Maroon Creek Road exit. A parking lot off the roundabout offers shuttle service to Maroon Bells Road. Nestled in the Gunnison and White River National Forests, this area varies from 7,500 to over 14,000 feet! The Maroon Bells is one of Colorado's most photographed landmarks. The mirror-like reflective Maroon Lake will afford incredible views of the surrounding terrain and vegetation, which happens to be full of our lovely Colorado Aspen. (See Map)

Every great mountain should have a reflecting pool. The hiking is easy, nature abundant and the "Aspens" are spectacular year round. I only spent a few hours here, but you could spend years exploring this wonderful country.

Maroon Bells is absolutely stunning. It is impossible to take a bad photo here. No matter which direction you turn, you are surrounded by beauty. And, for better or worse, Maroon Bells is easily accessible to almost everyone. Park at Aspen Highlands Village, and board a bus that climbs up the mountain and drops you off near Maroon Lake (and later brings you back down). There are trails for every ability, whether you want a quick walk around the lake, a longer trek to Crater Lake, or you're feeling really adventurous and want to camp so you can climb to higher elevations. A must do if you're in the Aspen area.

I grew up in the Midwest and these were my first mountains, and beautiful peaks they are. There are lots of hiking and backpacking trails in the park. If you are going to hike, be sure to go in prepared.
