Peak Aspen Viewing 2019

The above average winter season not only made for some incredible summer hikes with Colorado wildflowers, but also sets the Aspens ups for an incredible Fall. It’s expected that the colors this year really pop as the added moisture really helps the Aspens grow.

  • September 18th – September 29th is the estimated best time for Summit County.
  • September 22 – October 3 is the estimated window for Lake County, Aspen and Buena Vista.
