Rocky Mountain National ParkAt the edge of Rocky Mountain National Park, Grand Lake is the deepest natural lake in Colorado, dipping to 265 feet. Fed by high mountain runoff, the lake is clear and pristine. In the summer, you can rent a boat, bring your own or simply enjoy the gentle lapping of the waves from the sandy shore. Grand Lake connects with Shadow Mountain Lake via a canal, and just down the road is Lake Granby, the second largest body of water in Colorado.

Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Rocky Mountain National Park exhibits the massive grandeur of the Rocky Mountains. Throughout its 415 square miles of rock-ribbed wildness, the park truly is a land of superlatives. Here, at least 60 mountains exceed 12,000 feet, topping off at 14,255 feet on the football field-sized summit of Longs Peak. Names such as Cirrus, Chiefs Head, Isolation, Mummy, and Storm evoke the grandeur of this high landscape.

Although the great peaks comprise the essence of the park, the delicate alpine flowers, clear lakes, rushing mountain waters, and impressive forests appeal to all the senses. An array of wildlife: moose, bighorn sheep, elk, deer, coyote - adds life to the landscape.

Rocky Mountain National Park offers many ways to experience nature in all its splendor. Take one of several scenic drives, including the famous Trail Ridge Road, known as the Highway to the Sky. Hike along a gentle trail to a cool waterfall, adventure all day to any number of soaring peaks, or challenge yourself with a vertical mountain climb. Fish for trout in a cool mountain stream or spend a day on one of many crystalline lakes.

In winter, snow blankets the range providing opportunities for telemark skiing, cross-country skiing or snowshoeing. You may also snowmobile within different areas of the park.
