“East Entrance to the RMNP”
Rocky Mountain National Park encompasses 415 square miles of north central Colorado. The park has two gateway communities: the town of Estes Park on the east and the town of Grand Lake on the west.
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!
Love this park 💚 beautiful trails, peaks & wildlife. hike early to avoid noon thunderstorms
Definitely go here! It's beautiful! I've been twice now and would 100% go back again!
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!
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!
My favorite park so far in the US.
So beautiful. The incredible pictures do not serve it justice. All of the rangers are super nice as well. It's just heaven on Earth. You have to go.
Also has some of the cleanest and best run facilities of any of the national parks that we have visited.
Absolutely incredible! Even though most of the trails and roads were closed due to snow, the views were still beautiful. Even saw some animals :)
One of my favorite national parks! Breathingtaking view everywhere you go! I'm so in love with this place.
