Rocky Mountain National Park celebrated it’s 100th year anniversary on January 26, 2015. With outdoor activities abound, Rocky Mountain National park is north of Denver and is open year-round 24 hours a day. There are more than 60 peaks to observe the grandeur of the Rocky Mountains. Massive peaks with elevations as high as 14,259 include Long’s Peak and provide for an abundance of activities like hiking, biking, camping, fishing, golfing and hot springs. Inside this beautiful park, spy on some of the largest wildlife, like bighorn sheep, elk and moose and take some pictures, but not too close.
On the west side of the park is Grand Lake, CO which offers ice fishing, snowmobiling and skiing nearby. The east side of the park begins with Estes Park, CO. The towns are connected through the park by winding paved roads, including the Trail Ridge Road Scenic byway. The road is closed during the winter time with abundant snow fall, but opens for Memorial Day. For more information visit Trail Ridge Road Information.
