Rocky Mountain National Park



Dedicated as a National Park on September 4, 1915, Rocky Mountain has played an important role in the lives of many Coloradans for over 100 years. Spanning 415 square miles and hugging the Continental Divide, it has incredibly diverse terrain and stunning views. RMNP has an adventure for everyone; from wheelchair friendly paths to a staggering 14er and over 300 miles of trails, you can truly find your park here. 

This guide is meant to be a starting place to planning your adventures. Typically, my first source of inspiration is other people - seeing the hikes and adventures others have gone on fuels my drive to plan my own; hopefully this page can serve as the same for you. Featuring short trail descriptions, links to previous trail reports (beside trail name), and important information about the elevation in the hike, it is not an extensive or comprehensive guide. Always check the Rocky Mountain National Park website for alerts and current trail conditions and be aware that hiking in RMNP is hiking at high elevation.
