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.

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.
