If You’re Ever in Aspen…

Be sure to hike the Maroon Bells, during summer that is. They are one of the most photographed peaks in the U.S. and are absolutely stunning.

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.
