Colorado Trip Itineraries

5 Day Summer Hike and Mountain Bike Car Camping Adventure

Destination(s): Aspen

This active trip combines the adventure of hiking and biking in Aspen with forays into nearby Crested Butte for an unforgettable week of active fun in one of Colorado's most beautiful areas. While this trip offers a combination of outdoors activities, staying indoors one or two night may be a nice option to clean up-- though the camping in this area is gorgeous. It's your call--either way you're going to have a blast! read more about 5 Day Summer Hike and Mountain Bike Car Camping Adventure

Maroon Lake Scenic Trail

Maroon Lake Scenic Trail

This popular trail is a photographer's delight, with stunning views of the fabled Maroon Bell peaks (along with nearby Pyramid Peak). On quiet days, Maroon Lake acts like a natural mirror and the effect is especially pronounced at dawn and twilight. As the trail circumnavigates the lake, ambitious hikers can take alternate trails towards West Maroon Pass for a longer day of hiking. Terrain around the lake is flat and good for kids and families. Directions: Drive 1/2 mile west of Aspen on Highway 82 and turn left onto Maroon Creek Road at the roundabout. Keep right and continue 9 1/2 miles to the Maroon Lake Parking Area. From mid-June through September, the Maroon Creek Road is closed from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and you will need to take a shuttle bus from Ruby Park in Aspen. The bus includes an informative guided tour of the valley. Contact the Roaring Fork Transit Agency at 970-925-8484 for more information. read more about Maroon Lake Scenic Trail
