Starting in mid-September, the Roaring Fork Valley's landscape dramatically transforms from mountainsides covered in a lush green to strikingly bright yellows, oranges, and reds. Having the opportunity to view the fall colors in Aspen and Snowmass is a special experience.
One of the best ways to go on a leaf peeping adventure is to select a local trail, and enjoy a hike through the glowing aspen groves. Fall hikes in Aspen and Snowmass are particularly magical, as the fall season comes with sunny weather and yellow, crunchy aspen leaves blanketing the trails.
A favorite fall hike in Snowmass is the Ditch Trail, which is located just beyond the Snowmass Village Mall.
Farther up valley, the fall scenery is also spectacular. Near Aspen, Castle Creek Road, located just off of the roundabout, offers the perfect opportunity for a scenic Sunday afternoon drive. The drive up Castle Creek Road is stunning in the fall, and is the ideal leaf peeping trip for visitors who prefer sight-seeing via car.
In addition to leaf peeping, plan your drive up Castle Creek Road so that you can enjoy a delightful lunch at Pine Creek Cookhouse.
