Parks and Nature in Aspen


The White River National Forest, which surrounds Aspen, provides awe-inspiring, panoramic landscapes of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. This Alpine-mountain village is dotted with lush aspen groves, rushing rivers and pristine meadows.

Take in the breathtaking views of the Maroon Bells, the most photographed mountains in North America, where a variety of natural habitats are home to abundant wildlife, meadows of wildflowers and some of the most stunning views in all the world. This collection of distinctive, bell-shaped peaks towers some 14,000 feet over the glacial Maroon Valley.

Spend an afternoon relaxing in the beautiful John Denver Sanctuary near the Roaring Fork River. Here you’ll discover The Song Garden, where the iconic singer’s song lyrics etched in stone create a circle of life, where stands a splendid Colorado blue spruce symbolizing the spirit of the legendary singer.

Explore the Grottos Ice Caves and discover unique rock formations, ice caves and waterfalls. Or hike the scenic trails that make up the North Star Nature Preserve and experience magnificent views of the valley below.

Breathe in the crisp mountain air on a wildlife tour and discover elk, deer, mountain goats and so many more animals in their natural habitat. For a robust adventure, choose to hike, or take a Jeep tour for an off-road trek. Or create your own wildlife tour by walking mountain trails like the Maroon Lake Scenic Trail and the Rio Grande Trail.
