I just visited the park in June 2014. It is gorgeous. Lots of mountains, valleys, wetlands, and pine forests. The terrain is varied, so you get to see a lot of different things. We saw hundreds of elk on our visit - mostly grazing in the valleys. The mountain views are really beautiful at this park.

Outstanding Teens and young kids liked it very much. We did not expect to see wild animals but we did see them! Running rivers were awesome. We walked and crossed the river, it was very cold and nice experience. We saw the continent dividing point, it is an amazing thing to know and see. Even we had chance to play... More

Just got back from Estes Park and had a good time despite the speed traps. First of all let me say that the views in the park were glorious. We saw beaver, elk, moose, pika, and marmots. I also saw a park ranger who gave me a $125 speeding ticket! There are several places in and out of the park... More

What a wonderful trip! We loved the mountains. We hiked to Bear and Nymph Lakes, saw lots of snow, traveled the Trail Ridge Road from Deer Ridge Junction to Grand Lake. We saw elk and even a couple of moose. It was majestic, and awe-inspiring. Estes Park is charming, and not to be missed either.

We visitied Rocky mountain national park in early May last year. It was great to drive through the byways and see the nice scenery. I wish we visited there after the memorial day because some of the scenic trails were closed until then. Bear lake was frozen and many areas were covered with snow but still the scenery was priceless.... More

You just have to go to see the beauty. 14,000 feet in the air in the middle of the Rocky Mountains with nothing stopping you from falling 14000 feet. Majestic experience.

The endless of views of these snow-capped mountains are breath-taking!!! Everyone must see and enjoy the beauty and wonder of the Rockies. Words and pictures do not do it justice. It is a must-see to truly appreciate.
