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.”
