For now, you can book a slot to drive up Maroon Creek Road. Reservations are $10 per vehicle.

Starting June 28, visitors will be required to use the RFTA shuttle service between the hours of 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Personal vehicles are allowed to access the Maroon Bells Scenic Area outside of shuttle bus hours of operation, but reservations are required.

The fare will be $15.95 per person for all shuttle reservations. The shuttle is primarily accessed from the Aspen Highlands Ski Area, where parking is free for the first 30 minutes, $10 for up to three hours, $15 between three and eight hours, and $30 for more than eight hours. The Aspen Highlands can also be accessed three times each hour on the free Castle Maroon bus from downtown Aspen.
