  • This was our 1st 10 mile hike for this season here! From climbing up the Timberline waterfalls to slipping in the snow on top of the mountain to the breathtaking views of Glacier Gorge, Alberta Falls, The Loch and Lake of Glass we experienced it all !! Definitely my most favorite hike so far !

Where to stay in Rocky Mountain National Park

Camping offers one of the best ways to immerse yourself in the nature of Rocky Mountain National Park. The park offers more than 500 individual sites spread out over five developed campgrounds, and wilderness camping expands your options even further. Many visitors stay in the eastside gateway town of Estes Park, where you can choose from lodges, resorts, economy motels, small inns, bed and breakfasts, and cabins. The town features a lake and views of the park's sharp peaks. On the park's western side, a handful of lodges, inns, cabins, and motels are clustered around Grand Lake and Shadow Mountain Lake.
