The West Maroon Trail is hardly to be undertaken without a solid hiking background. You will find two waterfalls and lakes each, an alpine basin, and stunning views of the Maroon Bells and Pyramid Peaks on this 13-mile long trail. This path follows the Maroon-Snowmass trail to the Crater Lake and then climbs up the West Maroon valley right below the Maroon Bells. The trail is one of the most difficult ones in Colorado so it is not recommended for those who have not had a lot of hiking experience. Most hikers who have explored this trail will quote, this is one Aspen experience that few can undertake but none can ever forget.
