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

This is one of the most awesome inspiring drives. The scenery is stunning but when you get to the top ....beware there are no barriers to keep you falling off the mountain. It is really scary. I would not take anything for the adventure but it is a once in a lifetime ride for me because I would not do... More

SPECTULAR! The views and scenic turn outs are the best. If it weren't for digital cameras you would never have enough film!

This is one of the most beautiful parks I have ever seen. Lots of wildlife roaming free in the park, mountains are spectacular, waterfalls and lakes. Lots of hiking and pick nicking opportunities. Best thing it is just 5 minutes from Estees park downtown area, great restaurants and lots of little shops. This park is a must see.
