The Maroon Bells are two of the most photographed mountains in all of North America — and for good reason. Rising more than 14,000 feet above sea level just south of Aspen, Colorado, the twin peaks look as though someone striped them with a white crayon. Aspen trees drape the hillsides while Maroon Lake provides a handy mirror to witness the whole scene in a postcard-perfect reflection.

Hiking remains the best way to experience the unparalleled beauty of the area, especially in July when the alpine meadows bloom with a profusion of flowers, or in late September as the Aspen trees turn an amber yellow during fall. Road cyclists love to ride their bikes up Maroon Creek Road, and campers can find a rewarding solitude in the small, National Forest Service campgrounds that line the route.

Because the area is so wildly popular, vehicular access to Maroon Creek Road in summertime is by shuttle bus only from early June to early October, with some exceptions. Learn more about getting to Maroon Bells.
