There is no doubt that this a 5 star site to visit ... but, you will be disappointed if the weather is a factor. We had to visit on October 2 and made the bus trek to the trailhead. Never saw the bells or much...More

Any time of year is great to visit the Maroon Bells. The Bells are majestic and magical. Chances are in mid October most of the fall colors will be gone. I suggest that you keep the Maroon Bells as a destination on your trip, you will not be disappointed. The roads should still be open in October as long as there is not heavy snowfall.
To double check if the roads are open visit the government Maroon Bells website.
Maroon Bells are open year-round but in the winter the only way in is by dogsled, horse, snowshoe or cross country ski. I believe from the gate the trek is over 8 miles.
