Summer offers the best of all worlds, and you’ll want to take advantage of every moment of sunlight to pack in a wealth of activities. Get to the famous Maroon Bells before the sun comes up so you can enjoy the colors illuminating the 14,000-foot peaks over the water. Summer is the perfect time to enjoy your favorite outdoor activities, like hiking, mountain biking, and swimming. Hike to the Grottos, a series of waterfalls and river caves where you can set up a picnic and take a dip in the cold waters. Get an elevated perspective by crossing the Continental Divide at Independence Pass, the highest paved pass in North America. End your day with the Aspen bikers who pedal from one brewery to another every Tuesday night in the summer, cheersing drinks and enjoying the cool summer nights.
