Rocky Mountain National Park

Rocky Mountain National Park was created on January 26, 1915. It boasts elevations from 8,000 feet in the grasslands to 14,259 feet at Longs Peak.

Rocky Mountain National Park is definitely a place you have to visit if you enjoy nature and wildlife. Here you can watch elk, mule deer, moose, bighorn sheep, black bears, coyotes, cougars, eagles, hawks and other smaller animals go about their business in their natural habitat. If you love wildflowers, be sure to visit in June and July when the meadows and hills become a show of amazing colors. In the fall, relax under the aspen trees and read a book.

The park has more than 300 miles of trail offering countless opportunities if you want to go hiking, backpacking, or horseback riding. Fly-fishers, bird-watchers, and photographers will also be able to find countless opportunities to enjoy the area. In the winter, snowshoers and cross-country skiers will love the blankets of snow that fall across the landscape, providing perfect conditions to enjoy their sport.
