Elk Mountains

The Elk Mountains are located in western-central Colorado in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. They’re known primarily for the popular outdoor destination of the Maroon Bells, a pair of peaks situated high above Maroon Lake below. The glacial lake is a known location for both outdoor recreation, as well as photographers. Though closed in the winter, the Maroon Bells attract a variety of people from travelers anxious to see the prominent peaks, to hikers and climbers itching for rugged and remote outdoor adventure.
