Get ready for the high altitude with elevations ranging from 8,000 to more than 14,000 feet atop Longs Peak. Rocky Mountain National park offers many breathtaking views as well as opportunities to see elk, deer, moose, bighorn sheep, birds and bears. In June and July wildflowers are abundant and the park offers more than 350 miles of hiking trails, some easy, some that require climbing equipment. Even if you’re not at top physical shape, the flat, less than a mile hike around Sprague Lake offers the perfect experience for views of the mountains at a lower elevation. Another is the two-mile (one-way) Gem Lake Trail where hikers have views across Estes Valley to Longs Peak. Back a lunch because once you get to the lake it’s the perfect spot for a picnic.
During the warmer months, the scenic Trail Ridge Road is the perfect way for a quick view of the park. Stop at the Tundra World Nature Trail and take the half-hour walk. The 48-mile drive through the park is about two hours each way traveling up to the tundra and offers many short hikes and stopping points.
