How To See Colorado's Fall Colors.

The Best Fall Hikes.


Come mid-September, the Rocky Mountains get swept with gold, with changing Aspens illuminating the rolling peaks and paths. It’s quite a sight to see, and lasts until mid-October.

Below, a curated selection of spectacular, family-friendly hikes throughout the Rockies.


ASPEN: Maroon Bells

Drenched in Aspen groves, few places top the list to experience fall’s glory more than Aspen. Just outside this sophisticated, authentic mountain town, Maroon Bells is our favorite spot to view the changing colors. With a picturesque lake, topped by two 14,000-feet mountains of Maroon Bells, it’s no wonder this stunning view is one of North America’s most photographed spots.

Cuvée Style: Look to your Cuvée Experience Curator to arrange the excursion, complete with a Go Pro to capture the moment, and a post-hike picnic.

VAIL: Booth Falls

The 3.9 mile round trip to Booth Falls winds through glades of Aspen trees, across babbling brooks, and ends at a beautiful waterfall. The trail is rated as moderate, which means almost everyone can enjoy it, but there is some elevation to get your heart pumping.

Cuvée Style: Look to your Cuvée Experience Curator to arrange an early hike, complete with transportation and a gourmet picnic lunch along the river, so you don’t have to fight over a parking spot with the locals.

BEAVER CREEK

The Beaver Lake trailhead is situated just out the back door of The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch. This 4.8 mile round trip is family friendly and winds through beautiful Aspen Groves and guides you to at Beaver Lake.

Cuvée Style: End with a Cuvée-curated trip to the area’s top breweries and distilleries (you’ve earned it!).

The Beaver Lake trailhead is situated just out the back door of The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch. This 4.8 mile round trip is family friendly and winds through beautiful Aspen Groves and guides you to at Beaver Lake, the perfect location to enjoy your gourmet picnic freshly-prepared by your Experience Curator, Crystal.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Mueller State Park

Just an hour’s drive south of Denver, Colorado Springs is an convenient yet stunning location to view some of the best foliage around. One of Cuvée’s favorite viewing location is Mueller State Park, which features miles of trails and tons of wildlife. We recommend embarking on the Cheesman Ranch Loop hike – a 5.4 mile moderate hike that winds its way through groves of Aspens and meadows.
