Welcome to Rocky Mountain National Park


And though it tops many travelers' itineraries and can get maddeningly crowded, the park has miles of less-beaten paths and the backcountry is a little-explored nature-lovers' wonderland. Excellent hiking trails crisscross alpine fields, skirt the edge of isolated high-altitude lakes and bring travelers to the wild, untamed heart of the Rockies.
