Fall is one of the most spectacular times of year in Aspen. Our namesake trees turn a golden hue and the weather is ideal for myriad outdoor activities. Explore by foot, car or bike around our beautiful golden forests, you will not be disappointed. Nature is unpredictable in our mountains; however, peak foliage season is typically the 3rd & 4th week of September.
