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.
On the 4th (Wed), tour the pleasant surroundings at Castle Creek Road and then trek along Maroon Lake Scenic Trail. On the next day, see the interesting displays at Snowmass Ice Age Discovery Center, hike along Rio Grande Trail, and then see a world frozen in time at Holden Marolt Mining & Ranching Museum.

To find other places to visit, maps, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Aspen online route builder .

Denver to Aspen is an approximately 3-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus and car. Prepare for little chillier weather when traveling from Denver in September: high temperatures in Aspen hover around 72°F and lows are around 41°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 5th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
