About Maroon Lake Scenic Trail, Aspen

On your way to Maroon Peak, make it a point to go on the Maroon Lake Scenic Trail. This is one of the most popular trails near Aspen. The lake reflects the high Maroon peaks in its azure waters and is a prime spot for fly-fishing in the summer. The trees surrounding this lake display their rich auburn colours in the fall. The trek begins near the parking area for commercial vehicles and buses and weaves through a meadow near the end of the lake. The trail then loops around a beaver pond before going back to the lake. Its total length is around three miles and it can be easily navigated by people belonging to all age groups. Access to this trail is available from near the Maroon Bells as well.
