Here is a list of some essentials for day-trips to the Maroon Bells Scenic Area:
Local's Tip: Bring your flower and bird identification book in the summer! Remember to take only photos and leave only footprints... keep wildflowers in the ground and growing!
The Maroon Bells is a heavily traveled location so expect to share the space. There are daily informational tours that you can participate in, just check times at the Visitor Station where the bus drops off!
Cooler temperatures are a defining characteristic of the Bells, but summer weather does bring warmer temperatures. There are Forest Service rangers monitoring the area during the summer and early fall months, and are more than willing to assist you should you need it.
Expect to have your breath taken away by the beautiful Bells.
