Beautiful and difficult hike due to a very rocky trail. Wear thick soled hiking shoes or the path will bruise your feet. We saw a moose at the trailhead.

We hiked this July 11th, 2016. It's a moderate hike up until you have to cross the river. After that we were climbing 3 ft snow banks especially the last 1-1.5 miles. Definitely possible without snowshoes. We started at 9:30am & made it there at 2:30ish. There were about 10 other people when we made it up. Stayed the night at a campsite nearby. Totally worth the view. The next day it took us 4 hours to trek back down & I was SO happy to see the car. My advice: make this a weekend trip & enjoy the hot springs because this hike was strenuous!

We hiked from the East end of the trail in CB into Aspen. It was raining and hovering just below 50 degrees, but even in the slug if was a gorgeous hike!

Decent trail, takes you to the base of the bells, worth it if you have the time, although the bells still look better from Maroon Lake if your there to take a photo op

Well worth the trip, beautiful views all around. Invest in some good hiking boots or shoes as the trail is very rocky. I would not recommend carrying babies or toddlers in arms as one misstep could cause serious injuries.

This was one of the most amazing trips we have done. The wildflowers were unbelievable! I would highly recommend this for someone looking for a challenge. We did the loop in 2 1/2 days with minimal down time. Each pass gave you spectacular views. Well worth the hard work.

This hike was beautiful! Lots of shade, wildlife, and towering scenery! We did this with a 2(holding him most the way, whew tiring!) 4, and 6 year old and they did fine, may not be appropriate for kiddos that don't hike often as the trail is very very rocky and a fairly steady climb. Wear sturdy shoes with thick soles as the trail is very rocky and jagged.
