Rocky Mountain National Park’s 415 square miles encompass and protect spectacular mountain environments. Take a drive down Trail Ridge Road which includes many overlooks to experience the subalpine and alpine worlds – along with over 300 miles of waterfalls, hiking trails, wildflowers, wildlife, starry nights, and fun times. Rocky Mountain National Park is one of the highest national parks in the nation, with elevations from approximately 8,000 feet to over 14,000 feet.
Sixty mountain peaks result in world-renowned scenery! The Continental Divide runs north – south through the park, and marks a climatic division. Ancient glaciers carved the topography into an amazing range of ecological zones. What you see within short distances at Rocky is similar to the wider landscape changes seen on a drive from Denver to northern Alaska. In a world of superlatives, Rocky is on top.
