Maroon Bells Transportation
The US Forest Service limits automobile traffic to the Maroon Bells in the summer months between 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. You can pay a fee to drive but the most popular mode of transportation is with the fee-based Roaring Fork Transit Authority (RFTA) bus service. Buses make the run every 20 minutes from the base of the Highlands Ski Area to the Bells. A little known fact is that the bus will stop and pick up hikers and roller blacers on its return trip from the bells. Hike the trail down to the East Maroon Creek Portal or in-line skate up from T-Lazy-7 Ranch and catch a free ride down back to your car.
