Fall is one of the most spectacular times of year in Aspen. Our namesake trees turn a golden hue and the weather is ideal for myriad outdoor activities; including golfing, biking, hiking, and fly-fishing. Explore by foot, car or on a bike around our beautiful golden forests, you will not be disappointed. Nature is always so unpredictable in our beloved mountains as we all know; however, peak foliage season is typically the 3rd & 4th week of September. Click Here for a live view of the fall foliage. Also, in the shoulder season, there are great hotel rates.
