The air is turning cooler, football season has arrived, and to some locals, the best time of the year to hike is approaching- Fall. Every season in Colorado is absolutely breathtaking, and fall is no exception. With pleasant and cooler temperatures making it the perfect climate for hiking, the brilliantly colored fall leaves are truly breathtaking and a great attraction for everyone in Colorado.
One of the favorite places to view fall leaves in Colorado is Aspen. Aspen is a few hours from Denver on I-70 (about 135 miles) and is considered one of the best places to view fall leaves in the country.
Maroon Bells is considered by many one of the best places in Aspen to view fall leaves. Some say it is one of the most photographed regions in Colorado. If you wish to view fall leaves in Maroon Bells, there are shuttle buses that leave Aspen regularly on weekends through September, because vehicle access is restricted.
When to View:
The leaves tend to turn earlier in the higher elevations. While it varies from year to year, usually this occurs some time between August through October.
