Aspen, Colorado

Colorado is one of the most popular destinations for fall foliage in the United States.

October is the time to visit when aspen trees turn golden across the state with Aspen being a particularly popular place with travelers.

Located about 2,5 hours from Denver airport, Aspen has many scenic hikes, overlooks and the incredible Maroon Bells, one of the most photographed places in North America.

A trip from Denver to Aspen takes about three hours via Interstate 70 and is by far one of the most popular road trips from the Mile High City.

You can also take a scenic drive via Independence Pass, the highest continuous paved road in North America with stunning views of the Rocky Mountains.

October is the best time to visit Aspen because the weather is perfect.

While it can be crisp in the morning and chilly at night, day time temperatures hover around high 50s mid 60s, offering a perfect opportunity for being outside.

If you want to see the incredible valleys of aspen trees surrounding this town, make your visit in the first week of October when the fall colors are at their brightest.

And don’t forget to take at least a couple of hikes to enjoy this incredible scenery.

Make sure to spend at least a couple of days in Aspen to explore wonderful hikes at Sunnyside Trail and Rio Grande Trail that can be accessed from downtown Aspen.

After enjoying the scenery, make sure to visit the city’s quaint downtown with its brick buildings from the mining era and get on the silver Queen Gondola to enjoy a panoramic view of the surrounding mountains.

Where to stay in Aspen: Stay at The Gant, a beautiful resort with outdoor pools and hot tubs at the base of Aspen Mountain.
