Sitting in the spectacular Colorado River-carved Glenwood Canyon, the Hanging Lake Trail is a must-stop along this scenic patch of highway.

Located about 45 miles from Hotel Colorado, the Maroon Bells are the most photographed mountains in North America. The 14,000-foot bell-shaped peaks reflect in the crystal clear lake below. The Maroon Bells Scenic Area features several hiking trails ranging from short hikes near Maroon Lake to longer overnight backpacking trips into the Maroon-Snowmass Wilderness. Because the natural landmark is so popular, there is limited access to the area during the summer and fall, and reservations are required to visit by car or shuttle.
