Come along for a mountain bike ride from the shore of Twin Lakes to the shoulder of Mt. Elbert and back. The route follows the Colorado Trail and forest roads from the shoreline to the groves of aspen along the flank of Mt. Elbert, then descends back along the Colorado Trail to the start point. Riding through miles of Aspens in the fall is just one of the many great ways to experience the Heart of Colorado. What is your favorite way to enjoy fall?
After a full day of hiking, biking or ATVing in the mountains or doing some late-season boating on the Arkansas River, a dip in the hot springs is a great way to end the day.
Several hot springs in the area draw visitors to Central Colorado from throughout the state and beyond.
Chaffee County boasts three natural hot springs that are open to the public.
