Rocky Mountain National Park Vacations & Travel

Rocky Mountain National Park Vacations

Below the tall peaks of the Rocky Mountains lies Estes Park. Sheltered within the Estes Valley, this small mountain town provides a perfect home base for your Rocky Mountain National Park vacation. The national park is a year-round destination with something for everyone. In the winter, snow blankets the mountains, ideal for skiing and snowshoe hiking. As the snow melts, visitors flock to the park to enjoy scenic mountain drives, hike through alpine meadows and fish for trout in one of the area’s many lakes.

When to Go

Rocky Mountain National Park’s size and location means that weather can be unpredictable no matter when you’re visiting. Expect heavy snow in the winter, and even into the spring for higher elevations. As spring warms into summer, sudden rain showers and thunderstorms can fill the normally sunny skies. In the fall, enjoy clear weather and cool mountain air as the leaves turn to brilliant shades of red, yellow and orange.
