“Maroon Lake in the Summer”

Maroon Lake Scenic Trail
Ranked #4 of 111 things to do in Aspen
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 26 March 2014

Beautiful trail to and around the lake. Family friendly. You get everything from beavers, wild grassy fields, snow capped mountain view, lake, creeks, wooden bridges, picnic, and mild lake-side trails. If you are visiting in the summer, be sure to bring lots of sun lotion and sun hat. Some part of the trail can be really hot with limited shading.

Definitely an iconic view of our country, a must if you are in the Aspen, Snowmass area. You can take a short family friendly walk for just several hundred yards or if you are a more seasoned and serious hiker you can go all the way to Crested Butte for an overnight. A breathtaking mountain lake and you feel that you have traveled back in time to a pristine environment. Must see. The Colorado mountains weather can be changeable so bring a fleece some water and snacks to stay for a while and enjoy.

It's a must. You can't come to Aspen and not see the most legendary view in all of America in my humble opinion. When you see a calendar for Colorado, the Maroon Bells is always featured. You don't have to be a hiker, just willing to walk a few hundred yards and you will be delighted by one of the most spectacular views ever. The lake is the perfect setting for the majestic peaks. And if you are lucky, you may see one of the local residents; moose, elk or deer.

My husband and I drove here early one morning why honeymooning in Colorado. Having traveled many places in Europe including Switzerland, Italy and France, I have to say this spot was truly breathtaking. This trail follows along the right side of the lake, which is just off the parking lot sidewalk. Bring your kids, parents or grandparents...a picturesque spot for the whole family. We continued on and hiked a moderate-level trail nearby, but most who were there that day with us stuck to the Maroon Lake trail.

A chance to see the Bells, using the pamphlet provided, and get some great pictures to take home with you for great memories.
