  • Would give it a 5 star but we missed turn and found other crevice caves by mistake. Turn left at "Grotto trail" sign.
  • This a good spot to get out, walk around, and explore natural geological formations along Independence Pass
  • If you are looking for the waterfalls and ice caves keep going, this marker is not accurate. There is another attraction called the grottos 9 miles further from Aspen just past Wellers campground and worth the short hike!
  • Gorgeous little trail!
