The Aspen area has many options for hiking. The twin peaks of the Maroon Bells, one of Colorado’s most recognizable landscapes and fourth-largest wilderness, is a major attraction for hikers from all over the country. Hanging Lake and Spouting Rock lie deep within the steep walls of Glenwood Canyon. Another attraction near Aspen is the breathtaking, 12,095-foot high Independence Pass. The road is the second-highest paved mountain pass in Colorado, and is usually closed from mid-October until Memorial Day due to heavy winter snows.
