Going to the Rocky Mountains, whether in a car, hiking, biking, whatever you choose is indescribable! You must see and realize it will be a spiritual experience! Possibly life changing! I've been to the Rockies in Colorado many times and it never gets old!

This is such a general attraction that I do not know how to explain it. From the national and state parks to all of the different small towns and vistas along the roads you cannot go wrong. Come to Colorado and check it out!

Busy on a Monday but so much to see. Saw a herd of elk and big horn sheep on the way up to the Alpine Visitor Center. Lots of trails to hike off the beaten path. Views that leave you breathless...literally.

Coming from Arizona, our first campsite was Hermosa Springs adjacent to Haviland Lake near Durango. Each spot is secluded. The host helped us by chopping wood and provided a map of nearby hikes. The hikes around the lake were short so we drove to find other trailheads. Next time we will buy the $4 hike book from the forest service.... More

If you love visiting National Park then this is one of those beautiful one! We went here in mid August which is basically peak summer in US and weather was cool at bottom. You definetely need light jacket when visiting this place due to cooler weather at higher alititude. Must do Trail Ridge road which starts from Estee Park entrance... More

We've been through the various roads and trails of Rocky Mountain National Park and it never gets old. You just don't know what you will see around the next turn. We've toured this area in a car, jeep, truck, SUV, and hiked areas on foot. It's just breathtaking. Now having been here before, the pine beetle is really taking it... More

My mom and I took a week and camped in the Rocky Mountains just outside of Denver. We stayed in the National Park. So many trails and things to do. Great for outdoors people. Haven't been since the legalization, but I would imagine it is even more fun now! :)

Very clean stopping points along the roads in the park. The ranger staff was very friendly and the visitor center movies are well worth the time. Very nice (sometimes crowed) Alpine Visitor Center gift shop.

This was my first trip to the Rockies and it didnt disappoint. We traveled first to Yellowstone and then to Glacier but snowfall kept us from seeing mountain vistas at Glacier. We never saw moose anywhere until we got to the valley on the west side of the peak. We drove thru RM Natl Park on way back to Denver... More

This is a beautiful park and when we visited this summer it was so green. I was not worried about fires because it seems like they are managing this risk and you can see work being done in a lot of places. We saw a lot of wild life, and the camping here is beautiful despite the cutting of trees.... More
