    Great Post! Rocky Mountain National Park has a great mix of wonderful views from the car, family friendly hikes and extreme hiking. We took our family there and were able to keep everyone happy with the great adventures the park had to offer.

    We found the Bear Lake Area, in particular, to have just amazing hiking and trails, and they were not too difficult either with a variety of scenery.

      That is the cutest story — my grandkids were little-bitty the first time too.

    I traveled to this area as a MS’er – would love to take my kids out there. I believe we went in June, maybe it was July… no snow if I recall.

      I’ve visited in both June & July, both times there was snow at the Continental Divide…meanwhile back in Denver it was a beautiful, warm summer day. Gotta love Colorado!

    Great point about having to be aware of atypical weather. There’s still two feet of snow on the ground in Banff National Park and it’s the end of April!

    Hey Diana,
    Nice trip with kids back there in Rockies. I Love writing about kids and making families spend some quality time with their kids. I recently wrote an article about games for kids. Hope this helps dads spend some quality time with their kids back at home

    We try to see at least one National Park each year. Your descriptions and pictures are lovely and this is one we haven’t been to yet. Hmmmmm… maybe a future trip on the horizon!

      I am a HUGE fan of National and State Parks — and my multigen family is too! Great way to get outdoors.

    Sounds a great road trip and love your photos of the national park, especially the shot of Trail Ridge Road. Thanks for a really useful post.

      LOVE Rocky Mountain National park — especially since it is just over an hour road trip from my home.
