Known as a ski resort town, Aspen's history goes back to its roots as a silver-mining village tucked away in an isolated valley of the Rocky Mountains.
You've now added Crater Lake Trail to your itinerary. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Aspen: Glenwood Springs (Hanging Lake Trail, Thermal Spas, &more), Vail (Betty Ford Alpine Gardens & Vail Mountain Resort) and Vail Pass Path (in Breckenridge). There's still lots to do: take in the awesome beauty at Maroon Bells, take a memorable drive along Independence Pass, pause for some photo ops at The John Denver Sanctuary, and trek along Maroon Lake Scenic Trail.

For other places to visit, more things to do, maps, and other tourist information, read our Aspen holiday builder site.

Use the Route module to find travel options from your starting location to Aspen. In June in Aspen, expect temperatures between 79°F during the day and 43°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Wed) to allow time to drive to Basalt.
