    Rocky Mountain National Park’s 415 square miles encompass and protect spectacular mountain environments. The park is a bucket-list destination for many, with crystalline alpine lakes, jagged mountain peaks, rolling valleys and abundant wildlife. Enjoy Trail Ridge Road — which crests over 12,000 feet including many overlooks to experience the subalpine and alpine worlds — along with over 300 miles of hiking trails, wildflowers, wildlife, starry nights, and fun times.
