Went here during Memorial weekend and it was jammed packed despite the raindrops here and there. The scenery was well worth it. Colorado at it's best around this time of the year. The wet green tress and the beautiful peak of the sun throughout the day. I was only blinded by the snow's love. Can't wait till it's hotter here in CO to go hiking and looking for CO's breath taking moments!

Beautiful! Be warned though, that when it says no pets allowed on the trails, it means it. I tried bringing my small dog. I thought surely there wouldn't be that many park rangers, I was wrong, they are everywhere. So sadly, just leave the pup at home!

Absolutely incredible! Even though most of the trails and roads were closed due to snow, the views were still beautiful. Even saw some animals :)

Breathtaking scenery! We saw Elk grazing on the mountainside, and the remains of snow at the mountain at the Alpine Visitors Center. The Trail Ridge Road takes you all the way to the top! Elevation: 11, 796 ft! Awesome!

amazing place with beautiful scenery!
We saw a black bear and got close up to elk and deer! e
Even though it's summer, there was a lot or snow as it's very elevated, but I recommend it 100%, you won't regret it!

No trip to Colorado is complete without a road trip to Rocky Mountain National Park! This popular park contains over 415 square miles of trails to enjoy.

If you only have one day in the park, I recommend driving Trail Ridge Road or Old Fall River Road to experience all of the amazing views — without having to step foot out of the car.

As far as hiking trails go, I’d recommend heading to the Bear Lake Corridor. The hikes here range from quick quarter mile nature walks with incredible views, to epic hikes, depending on how far you want to go. Some notable spots to check out along this route are: Bear Lake Trail, Emerald Lake Trail, Loch Vale Lake, and Sky Pond.

If you’re looking for an epic adventure, hike the tallest mountain in RMNP, Long’s Peak.

We think a visit here is one of the best day trips from Denver!
