Make fall Count
As the days get shorter, the mountain air a little crisper, and fall golden hues emerge from trees- we have a list of some of the best ways to make your fall count in Aspen.
8:00 am: Head out to the Aspen Saturday Market and grab some of fall’s best seasonal produce while enjoying all the live music, crafts, and art the market has to offer.
10:00 am: Go leaf-peeping on one of Aspen’s scenic trails. With the cooler weather and stunning fall foliage, hiking during autumn season is a must do. We recommend Hunter Creek Trail, American or Cathedral Lake, Sunnyside Trail, and Maroon Lake Scenic Trail for some of the best leaf viewing.
12:00 pm: Join ACES (Aspen Center for Environmental Studies) at their annual Harvest Party at Rock Bottom Ranch. The event is a fundraiser for sustainable agriculture and features lunch, live music, pumpkin carving, apple cider pressing, hay rides, and much more around the Ranch. (October 13). Not in town October 13? Check out our Monthly Event Calender with the latest happenings around Aspen.
5:00 pm: Grab a seasonally inspired beer and hearty appetizer from Aspen Tap Room. They feature a seasonal fall hop, Double Conundrum Imperial Red, which is a fresh brew inspired by the aroma of fall harvest.
7:00 pm: Finish your night at the Aspen Film Fest, Aspen’s flagship event showcasing narrative and documentary features, award-worthy fall previews, and acclaimed independent films from the international festival circuit. Past screenings include Lady Bird, The Imitation Game, and The King’s Speech. (9/25-30)
