To access them, you park at the Highlands Ski Lodge and a shuttle takes you over to the trailhead. There is a learning center and trails surrounding the lake at the bottom of the hills. This is a great hike for all skill levels. Trails run around the lake, while a more intermediate trail takes you on a 6 mile round trip hike up to another lake. For advanced rock climbers, you can always climb to the summit of The Bells.
And of course, after you’ve spent a nice afternoon hiking, you can head back in to the town of Aspen for a fun and exciting evening.
