Ancient upheavals, volcanic eruptions and glacial scouring cut and carved great diversity and incredible beauty into this multi-faceted gem, Rocky Mountain National Park, fittingly set midst Roosevelt and Arapaho National Forests and Colorado State Forest. Nowhere else in the United States can a visitor see so much alpine country, with such ease. Only 2 hours’ drive from Denver, Trail Ridge Road takes visitors into the heart of Rocky Mountain National Park. The Continental Divide splits the Park into east and west sides.
Shuttle Bus, this is an excellent service which runs during the summer months when there is almost no parking at the trailheads in the Bear Lake area.
