  • Quite a climb from the Maroon Peaks trailhead, but, man, will I look back in it as one of the coolest places on earth.
  • One of the best hikes out of Aspen. You have great view all the time. It is about 9 miles roundtrip and there is no exposure or steep slippery path like at most 14-ers. It is also shallower, so much easier than even the easy 14-ers. With that said it is still a good 5-6 hr hike and strenuous for most people. The view on the top is great - basically 360 degrees view, onto Snowmass lake and mountain in one direction and back toward the Bells and Pyramid in the other. Best to do with a day parking permit if you are lucky enough to get one and leave reasonably early like 6-7am. We did it with the first shuttle bus at 8am and was still doable - we were back around 3pm at Maroon lake.
