No cars allowed.  A bus, provided by the City of Aspen, climbs the steep road to a reflective lake and two giant snow-striped mountaintops, named Maroon Peak and North Maroon Peak, anchor a blissful panorama exemplified by a symphony of color that changes with the seasons.

Hiking trails provide access to plenty of photo-worthy scenes in the White River National Forest, including hypnotizing wildflower field.
