Known as a ski resort town, Aspen's history goes back to its roots as a silver-mining village tucked away in an isolated valley of the Rocky Mountains.
You've now added Crater Lake Trail to your itinerary. Explore Aspen's surroundings by going to Vail (Horseback Riding Tours, Betty Ford Alpine Gardens, & more), Vail Pass Path (in Breckenridge) and Glenwood Springs (Hanging Lake Trail, Thermal Spas, & more). Next up on the itinerary: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Maroon Bells, trek along Maroon Lake Scenic Trail, get great views at Independence Pass, and relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour.

Plan my trip to Aspen with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

In June in Aspen, expect temperatures between 79°F during the day and 43°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
