Rocky Mountain Insider Tips

Discover hilltop trails
If you really want to make the most of the incredible panoramic views, pick a trail that leads you above the treeline, an option plentiful amongst the phenomenal setting of the Rockies. This will ensure you get to experience and savour the awe-inspiring views of Rocky Mountain National Park, while giving your hiking boots a work out. A range of trails for all abilities are available, all incredibly rewarding and enjoyable.
When to go
The best time to visit the Rocky Mountain National Park is in June, July and August. The summer months have been the most popular for thousands of years, with Native Americans making the journey over some of the trails that are still in use today. You'll find that the weather is pleasantly warm during these months, although they will drop the higher up you go. It is also the time when all the wildflowers bloom, making the breathtaking tundras even more exquisite.
