Make fall Count
As the days get shorter, the mountain air a little crisper, and fall golden hues emerge from the trees - we have a list of some of the best ways to make fall count in Aspen.
8:00 am: Head out to the Aspen Saturday Market and grab some of fall’s best seasonal produce while enjoying all the live music, crafts, and art the market has to offer.
10:00 am: Go leaf-peeping on one of Aspen’s scenic trails. With the cooler weather and stunning fall foliage, hiking during autumn is a must do. We recommend Hunter Creek Trail, American or Cathedral Lake, Sunnyside Trail, and Maroon Lake Scenic Trail for some of the best leaf viewing.
12:00 pm: Join ACES (Aspen Center for Environmental Studies) at their annual Harvest Party at Rock Bottom Ranch. The event is a fundraiser for sustainable agriculture and features lunch, live music, pumpkin carving, apple cider pressing, hay rides, and much more around the Ranch.
5:00 pm: Grab a seasonally inspired beer and hearty appetizer from Aspen Tap. They feature a seasonal fall hop, Double Conundrum Imperial Red, which is a fresh brew inspired by the aroma of fall harvest.
7:00 pm: Finish your night at the Aspen Film Fest, Aspen’s flagship event showcasing narrative and documentary features, award-worthy fall previews, and acclaimed independent films from the international festival circuit. Past screenings include Lady Bird, The Imitation Game, and The King’s Speech.
