Gourmet Shop
“Check with them to see if they are having a BBQ or live music. Even if they're not, they have long-roped swings in the trees and a great music system outdoors. You can also walk through their extensive orchards. ”

“Ute Trail and Aspen Mountain is a hard hike. It's approximately 1.2 miles to the Scenic overlook and its about 2 more miles up Aspen mountain. The whole hike can take anywhere depending on your skill level from 1.30-3.5 hours to the top of Aspen mountain. There is blue grass music on Sundays and YOU CAN RIDE THE GONDOLA DOWN! ”

Scenic Viewpoint
“Mount Massive is a long hike but worth it for the views. The trailhead is easily accessible (and no 4WD is needed in the summer months). The trailhead gets crowded, so arrive early or be prepared to have to walk some to the trailhead. Don't forget to bring enough water!”

Scenic Viewpoint
“The road is sketchy (you can rent a jeep in Marble) but this is one of the most photographed places in Colorado. A "don't miss" in the Fall.”

“Judd Falls Trail is a 2.2 mile (or as short as .5 mile out and back if you park all the way at the top of the fire road) moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Crested Butte, Colorado that features a lake and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is best used from June until October. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.”
