Great place in the summer, unless you like skiing

The air is awesome, it's a get away from the city, great fishing if you know how to spot "fishing holes" fun tubing or canoeing.

Been there in several skiresorts, Winterpark, Eldora and Copper Mountain. All are very nice. The lifts are very dated compared to the one in Austria (EU). That makes the price of the tickets very expencive. For everyone good slopes, beginner and andvanced! Had a nice time overthere. Joe

Rocky Mountain NP is a truely beautiful place. However, US highway 34 is closed for many months due to the second stage of road repair for flood damage. Of course, if you are traveling into the mountains during Winter months, you need to check both highway and weather reports. Be smart with winter mountain car trips, pack water, a couple... More

Absolutely love the different views and scenery. Would definitely go back again. My youngest girl is 8 and she was delighted by the snow. We want to take a ride on the train in Durango thru the Rockies.

Beautiful October weather - time saver- use the Park and Ride service. Trails to Dream Lake and Emerald Lake are popular- aim for morning start - trails are well maintained - don't miss Bear Lake - easy / mostly flat trail with beautiful views. Lots of fun - good work out!

This is an incredible park IF you can get a parking place. We were forced to higher elevations to park and hence altitude sickness hit hard for 24 hours, even after coming out of the park. The mountains are gorgeous and likewise the trails.

Traveling to Rocky Mountain in the fall and saw the fall foliage was an unforgettable experience. Strongly recommend everyone to experience it. The park is huge and it took all day just to zipping thru it. Its definitely takes more than one day to really enjoy this mountain. Reaching the 12,000 feet wasn't easy but felt so good to accomplished... More

Although we have been to Rocky Mt National Park many times, we had never gone in autumn. We were surprised by the elk--how close the herds were and the call of the male elk. We also attended one of the park's educational events, which was interesting with information about the park's elk population and other animals. The park was beautifully... More

This is a spectacular park. You get to the top of the pass and there is another valley and another pass and another valley. We had great views of elk, sheep and other wild life. This is one of the neatest places on earth.

This park is beautiful any time of year but I especially like the fall when the crowds are down, the weather is still enjoyable and the roads are not a hazard. Some will be closed of course because of snow but there's still lots to see and great hikes. If you're coming on the eastern side, stop at the Beaver... More
