This is one of the most anticipated places for established and aspired photographers, so it is very crowded, so ideally have your own transportation before and after their bus shuttle schedule!

Fun and easy hike if you are visiting the bells. The terrain is mild and the view from the lake is worth the hike. Many people enjoy the lake and hang out a while before turning back.

This is a breathtaking place, the view - the mountains and the clear lake. It can give you a feel about importance of nature and how amazing it can make you feel. Ensure you reach here early morning to see minimum ripples on the lake or late in the evening just before sunset.

Beautiful drive up to the lake. Park and walk (hike) almost 2 hours to Crater Lake...incredible and a must discovery.

There are many different trails in Maroon Bells at all levels. The Lake Scenic trail is probably on of the easier trails and you get equally beautiful views.
