“feel like you're on top of the world”

Rocky Mountain National Park’s 415 square miles encompass and protect spectacular mountain environments. Enjoy Trail Ridge Road – which crests over 12,000 feet including many overlooks to experience the subalpine and alpine worlds – along with over 300 miles of hiking trails, wildflowers, wildlife, starry nights, and fun times. In a world of superlatives, Rocky is on top! Rocky Mountain National Park is a living laboratory. Everyone from preschoolers to Ph.D.'s can study their favorite natural sciences while enjoying the breathtaking beauty of this park. The riparian (wetland) ecosystem of the park is based in 150 lakes and 450 miles of streams. Lush plant life and dense wildlife are the hallmarks of these wet areas that speckle and divide other ecosystems. Forests of pine and grassy hillsides dominate the montane ecosystem in the park. These areas may be drier than riparian areas but life still abounds. Look for critters leaping or creeping from tree to tree or poking their heads from underground.

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!

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!

I definitely can’t beat the other reviews but I think the one bit of information you can get from me is just to go and experience it yourself. Being on top of these mountains is truly unlike anything else. Pictures and reviews will never do it justice.

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