Rocky Mountain National Park in the Summer
Encompassing more than 265,000 thousand acres, and with more than sixty peaks topping out at more than 12,000 feet, Rocky Mountain National Park is home to some of the most spectacular scenery on Earth. With more than 350 miles of trails meandering throughout the park, Rocky Mountain is also widely known as a hiker’s paradise.
Hikes, horseback rides, 4-wheel drive or auto tours all give visitors different views of the Park. Trail Ridge Road, the highest continuous paved highway in the United States, takes a winding course 12,183 feet above sea level. The summit can also be reached via Old Fall River Road, the original road crossing the Continental Divide. More than 90 percent of the park’s 415 square miles is wilderness. Camping and backpacking are permitted within the national park, although some areas require advance reservations or permits.

Elk and mule deer are most active at dusk and dawn, and are usually seen in meadow areas. Look for bighorn sheep along the Highway 34/Fall River corridor on the park’s east side. Coyotes may be seen any time of day.
