With beautiful views of the jagged bell-shaped peaks and the glistening Maroon Lake below them, this is one of the most picturesque natural wonders in Colorado.

The Maroon Bells rise 14,000 feet at their tallest point and are considered especially dangerous to climb


The Maroon Bells are located in Aspen, Colorado, which is accessible by car or airplane via Denver International Airport (DIA).


You can view the Maroon Bells from your car or venture deeper into the wilderness by hiking more than 30 miles of trails that lead off from Maroon Lake.


There are abundant wildlife-viewing opportunities around the Bells, so keep your eyes peeled for mule deer, mountain lions, elk, black bears and other local creatures.


Maroon Lake Trail is one of the most popular in the park and for good reason: it’s beautiful, easy and short—just a mile to Maroon Lake! The trailhead for this hike is located at the end of Maroon Creek Road.


Camping is allowed in the wilderness, but you must camp in designated areas. To get to these campsites, follow the road past Lake Maroon and head toward Maroon Bells Campground until you see a large parking area on your right with a sign that says “Wilderness Camping.”


Biking is a great way to see the area, especially if you’re short on time and want to get the most out of your trip.


The Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness is a relatively small area, but it offers many hiking and climbing opportunities. - A must visit for the adventurous!
