The Maroon Lake Scenic Loop Trail is an easy, short trail meandering along the creek.
Maroon Lake Scenic 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 9 am or after 5 pm. 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.
Maroon Lake Scenic Loop Trail: The hike
From the parking lot, follow the trail to the lake.
The trail continues to the right of the lake. At the “Scenic Loop Trail or Crater Lake” marker, keep left.
Cross the bridge over Maroon Creek and continue on the trail.
The trail forms a loop through the meadow and trees.
The trail is approximately 1 mile roundtrip.
