The Maroon Bells Crater Lake Trail is a moderate trail up to Crater Lake and the West Maroon Trail.
Maroon Bells Crater Lake Trail: Getting there
From the roundabout west of Aspen, take Maroon Creek Road. Check the sign just past the roundabout for road closure status. During busy times & the summer, cars are only permitted past the guard gate to the Maroon Lake parking lot before 9am or after 5pm.
On these days, park at Aspen Highlands and take the Maroon Bells bus (runs approx. every 20 minutes). If driving, a $10 fee applies for a 5 day pass.
From our couch, we can see a groundhog that lives in the field between our apartment and the ocean. We see him come out of the ground and walk around very close to his home a few times a week. Gee, who does that sound like?
