  • Ashley C.
    Nothing is dog-friendly and the park rangers were being jerks to everyone. Super disappointed and not sure if I want to go back. Mountains and trails were still awesome, of course.
  • Meredith P.
    The scenic view is good to look at and the small part of the river is near the picnic area in Rocky mountain national park.

    Believe the hype. Stunningly gorgeous scenery. Wild animals. Lava formations. Make sure your gas tank is full & take water in with you. Hydration is key. Altitude sickness is real. Enjoy.

    Definitely a park to get out of your car and hike. If you don't, you are missing out on much the park has to offer.

    This place is just stunningly beautiful. If you really want an experience, trek here during sunset, set up camp and wake up for the beautiful sunrise. This place is cold, so be prepared.

    Drive through and discover the grandeur of the Rocky Mountains. Come in the winter when blankets of white snow envelop the scenery. Snowboarding venues are also available. Fun for the entire family!

    Well, who goes thinking it is a small park, it is not. You need at least two days to visit all the places in the park. For the ones going, I suggest to take a look in the Bear Lake and the Dream Lake

    There's a lot of construction going on right now toward Bear Lake. Waited more than 30mins while 18wheelers went back & forth. Finally gave up.

    Looking to add a little off-road adventure to your visit? Take a drive up Old Fall River Road to the Alpine Visitors Center. You need 4WD/AWD, but it's well worth the fun drive and great views.

    During autumn the elk in the Park put on a show for their fall rut. Late September is when the bugling activity peaks, plus you'll catch the changing colors of the Aspen trees.
