Miles of Outdoor Adventure
After 300 million years of geologic activity, Mother Nature gave us the Maroon Bells, wine-colored peaks towering 14,000 ft. above sea level. The reflective Maroon Lake, nestled in the valley at the base of the peaks, beckons the outdoor adventurer seeking beauty, hiking and adventure.
At 12,095 ft at the summit, Independence Pass is the highest paved pass in the state.
We strive to keep the pristine beauty intact for generations to come. We hope that these tips compiled by locals assist you in enjoying all of Aspen's attractions.
