Rocky Mountain National Park draws hikers from all around the world to its diverse and beautiful trails. Whether you're looking for a casual stroll or a multi-day backpacking adventure, the Park has trails you'll love!
We've divided Rocky's trailheads and trails into 5 regions to make it easy for you to find a trail in the area where you'd like to start hiking.
Trails are listed under the trailhead where you will start your hike. 3D views of the hiking area give you a good feel for the terrain.
Each trail is rated in difficulty with a color coded icon. Elevation gain and distance are important factors to consider in choosing a trail because only you know your limits. Distance listed is one-way - double it for a round trip.
(Green circle) Easy - generally short and relatively level; accessible to nearly everyone who can handle the distance at altitude.
(Blue diamond) Moderate - requires some degree of physical conditioning. You should exercise regularly and be used to the high altitude of the Park before attempting one.
(Black diamond) Difficult - steep and/or long, and requires good physical conditioning and acclimation to the altitude of the Park.
