    Awesome park. Fly Fishing, Camping, Hiking... we usually see elk and often moose too. Not to mention tons of different types of birds and small animals.

    just under an hour drive from the house, so it is a great day trip
    beautiful drive there, and up to the summit, with plenty of small hikes to overlooks throughout the park
    we like Ed's Cantina and grill for Mexican food in Estes Park- good food and overlooking a creek

    Rocky Mountain National Park is truly a gem--gorgeous mountain vistas rushing rivers and clear mountain lakes, wild flowers, meadows, and forests and of course, wildlife like elk and big horn sheep. It kind of feels like you've stepped straight into a National Geographic documentary. No joke--it's that's awe-inspiring.

    The other huge plus about the park is that it's accessible to all sorts of visitors--from back country hikers to Sunday drivers; there pretty much is something for everyone. In terms of lodging, there are five drive-in campsites (and hundreds of back country sites) though if heat and electricity is more your style, there are lots of options in nearby Estes Park and Grand Lake.

    Rocky Mountain is the best place to get an up close view of Colorado's ecosystems and wildlife. With dozens of well maintained trails you can hike anywhere from 9000 to 13,000 feet. Trail Ridge Road will take you up to the tundra and across the Divide to Grand Lake. For wildlife spotters, the elk aren't shy.

    About 30 miles from the property, visiting this National Park should definitely be on your to do list.

    Most magical place, a definite "bucket list" item. Take time to drive Trail Ridge Road and take in the views from the Alpine visitor center but make sure you carry a jacket with you. At this altitude is not uncommon to have snow in the middle of July.

    There are so many beautiful places in this park, and different in every season. Hike, drive, or take a horse back ride through a wildlife wonderland.

    Gorgeous varied terrain and climates in a relatively small area. Like much of the West, the darn pine beetle has done a lot of damage here but still so many beautiful forested areas.

    What's not to love? Mountains, lakes, valleys, and wildlife. The landscape is too gorgeous for words. If you want to commune with nature, then this is an idyllic place to do just that.

    Great park, beautiful mountain hiking with rivers, lakes, forest and wildlife galore. Very popular and can get crazy crowded in the high season. can do it as a long day trip from Denver but better if you can spend a little more time.
