Discover the people, places, and resources in Rocky Mountain National Park
Rocky Mountain National Park is an amazing place! In the park you can hike through four different ecosystems: Montane Forests, Subalpine Forests, Alpine Tundra, and Riparian areas found by streams, lakes, and rivers. As you hike along, you might see a pine squirrel hiding pine cones in the subalpine forest, hear a woodpecker drilling on an old lodgepole pine to find the bugs living under the bark, or meet one of our rangers that help to protect and take care of the park every day.
