Near Snowmass Village, CO
I my opinion, the Capital Peak overlook is one of the most beautiful place in the whole state of Colorado. This special place will simply take your breath away!
When you finally make it to the top of a pretty serious dirt road (very narrow at the end with lots and lots of bumps) and arrive at the Capital Peak overlook/trailhead, you are greeted by one of the most stunning vistas you will ever see. Made up of Aspen trees, green forests, creeks, S shaped valleys and the Capitol Peak mountain range in the distance. This place seems almost imaginary (like it was from a painting or a Hollywood studio). If that is not good enough, during the fall months the Capitol peak glows red at dusk as the last light of the evening fades away. As you can tell, I really like this location.
