Description

Rocky Mountain National Park is one of the most popular natural parks featuring 76 mountains each over 10 thousand feet high. Equally enjoyable on foot or from your car, there are four separate ecosystems: montane, subalpine, alpine tundra, and riparian. Each has its own wildlife, beautiful scenery including alpine lakes, fantastic summits, and stunning views. The park is open all year round, but there will be closures due to weather. The park is easily accessible by shuttle from Denver International Airport and many shuttles run between the various trailheads, the Moraine Park Visitor Center and even the Glacier Basin Campgrounds.
